For Refugee Week, the Gulbenkian Theatre worked in partnership with Kent Refugee Action Network (KRAN) and East Kent City of Sanctuary to put on an event for the local community. ‘Simple Acts of Kindness’, based on the theme for that year’s celebrations, involved poetry, theatre, music, screenings and talks on the theme of refuge and asylum. Gulbenkian’s drama group for unaccompanied young refugees and asylum-seekers, ‘KRAN Fam’ performed, building on their partnership with Kent Refugee Action Network.
