The AMRC has been the convenor of SA Refugee Week since 2001. Each year, it brings together over 100 organisations as well as 1000s of individuals to present multiple events to coincide with UNHCR World Refugee Day on 20 June. This major event promotes and celebrates the contributions of refugees to South Australia; raises awareness of the issues encountered by refugees on a local, national and global scale; and encourages community engagement, partnerships, understanding and cultural harmony. SA Refugee Week is supported by volunteers, donations and sponsorships from participating organisations. Participants in events include schools, universities, TAFEs, local governments, churches, service organisations, welfare and charity organisations, and arts, cultural and advocacy groups. As convenor, the AMRC coordinates the official launch of the SA Refugee Week Calendar of Events, which includes forums, community events, social functions and exhibitions coordinated by councils, clubs, schools, churches, community groups and organisations.
