Our Work

All aspects of our work are done in collaboration – with artists, arts, cultural and educational organizations and civil society activists working with refugees and migrants.

We work to reach our mission – to support, produce and promote the arts by and about migrants and refugees – through a range of programmes and along the following three strands: Enabling, Producing and Learning.


This strand of our work is about developing strategic programmes and national platforms that enable organisations and practitioners to improve networking, develop practice and showcase work. The main examples of this work are Platforma and Refugee Week.


We produce high quality work across different artforms – events, exhibitions, commissions, digital platforms, artefacts and residencies in order to showcase outstanding work and reach wide and diverse audiences. As part of this strand, we are particularly interested in developing challenging concepts and working with partners and artists who push boundaries, challenge stereotypes and question traditional viewpoints about refugees and migrants.


Facilitating learning is central to what we do. Our learning labs and platforms are designed as spaces for peer-to-peer learning – encouraging imaginative reflection, cross-sector conversations, skills transfer, and the sharing of evaluation and impact.
