Join us this Sunday for an evening of music and spoken word from King’s students, local artists, and student refugees in support of WUSC King’s Student Refugee Program.
In keeping with WUSC King’s mission of supporting student refugees in their post-secondary education, “Visions of Home” asks local artists and students alike to share their response, in words and song, to the question, “Where do you come from?”
The evening features music and spoken word from:
-Meg Collins & Isabelle Flack
-Nawras Althiab & Janefer Mukasa, Student Refugee Program participants
Many thanks to Youth Art Connection and its partnership with King’s for making it possible to connect with local up-and-coming artists and performers for this student fundraiser. Thank you!
The World University Service of Canada (WUSC) is a leading Canadian non-profit organization in international development, committed to building a more equitable and sustainable world. They work with a unique and powerful network of post-secondary institutions, private-sector partners and volunteers to provide education, employment and empowerment opportunities that improve the lives of millions of disadvantaged youth around the world. King’s is a member of this cross-country network of educational institutions that take part in fundraising and awareness campaigns that are promoted and created by WUSC.
The University of King’s College chapter of WUSC is proud to focus on the Student Refugee Program (SRP). King’s WUSC supports the SRP through biannual sponsorship of a young refugee student to pursue their post-secondary education at King’s. WUSC allows for these students to become permanent residents of Canada through the immigration process and helps them through the application process. Then, we help the sponsored student by creating a positive and safe environment for settling into their new home and support in every way we can.
