The Refugee Festival 2023

The Refugee Festival 2023 will be taking place at the Kuala Lumpur Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (KLSCAH) from the 8th - 10th of September. The event was founded by investigative journalist Mahi Ramakrishnan and was first held at Black Box Publika in 2016. The event has since grown into an annual affair with even more participation from various refugee community leaders.

We discuss The Refugee Festival with Hasan Al-Akraa, a Syrian refugee, founder of Refugee Emergency Fund and Mohammad Ali Safdari, a refugee from Afghanistan and a musician.
