Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a planned visit by a group of adults and young people from Ein'Arik United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) school has been postponed to 2021.

A full programme had been organised for the visit, to include workshops in schools and a performance on the World Stage at Cowley Road Carnival.  However, we hope that these plans can be carried over to 2021.  The visit will be funded and managed by ORFA. Read more here.
