About No Direction Home

Counterpoints Arts runs No Direction Home as part of our PopChange project, in partnership with Camden People’s Theatre and comedian Tom Parry. It’s a unique course for new comics from refugee and migrant backgrounds. Since 2018 they have performed more than 15 gigs around the country, including at the Southbank Centre in London (see video below). PopChange explores how the power of pop culture can be harnessed to shift the way we talk, think and feel about migration and displacement.
