Platforma Network

The Platforma Network brings together groups and artists / performers of any background or political status (e.g. refugees and non-refugees), whose work examines the varied experiences of refugees both before and after they arrived and settled in their host country. It is managed by Counterpoints Arts in partnership with organisations across the country.

Every two years we run the Platforma Festival – the first was held in London (2011) , then Manchester (2013), Leicester (2015), Newcastle, Gateshead, Stockton & Middlesbrough (2017).
