The Paper Project - here is a link to a beautifully made film about our recent commission, The Paper Project – dedicated to undocumented young migrants.
Counterpoints Arts is a hub of creative arts and cultural projects exploring refugee and migrant experiences.
We believe in the dynamic power of the creative arts to inspire social change and enhance inclusion and cultural integration of refugees and migrants.
Our work aims to ensure that the rich cultural and artistic contributions of refugees and migrants are recognized and welcomed within British culture, history and identity.
As a Creative Hub, we co-create, develop, produce, facilitate, promote, curate, research, publish and disseminate a range of arts and media projects.
Counterpoints Arts emerges out of the joint and complimentary work of the Partnership for Arts and Refugees (aka Refugee Week UK) and FOMACS (Forum on Migration and Communications).
To learn more about our shared mission and vision, see our collective work and collaborative ethos and approach.
