We celebrate Refugee Week 2016 with a programme of film screenings, music gigs, performances, readings, installations and workshops – all happening across a range of top venues in London. The summer programme includes Learning Labs, a session at Christie’s and participatory events at the Festival of Love, and a rich mix of projects and events by our many partners. We bring you outstanding artists, collaborations, commissions and partnerships.
In the last six months we have spoken to over a hundred organisations and individuals, many of whom are interested in developing their first arts and cultural projects engaging with refugee and migrant experiences. These conversations have been both inspiring and moving. Some have resulted in exciting new artist commissions and projects; or have evolved into public facing programmes produced in collaboration with partners.
Our Summer Programme 2016 is a small reflection of these ongoing collaborations. We hope these conversations continue to grow and develop in powerful and surprising ways.
