To mark the start of this year’s Refugee Week, we’ve teamed up with our friends at BFI to compile a COLLECTION OF FILMS that explore refugee experiences in the past and present and across different parts of the world.
As well as co-ordinating Refugee Week around the country Counterpoints Arts also produced events at Southbank Centre, British Museum, BFI and RichMix. Find out more
The renowned fashion designer, Marios Schwab has collaborated with an award-winning art studio, Studio Moross, to create a small collection of stunning print designs for t-shirts in support of Refugee Week. Find out more.
This was the biggest Refugee Week up to date with over 600 events across the country. Thank you to everyone who got involved in, visited or promoted an event.
Here are the highlights of Counterpoints Arts programme at Southbank Centre, Rich Mix and the British Museum.
We look forward to working with all of you towards Refugee Week 2017!
