‘The dominant political and media discourse on migration in the UK is purposely devoid of context and compassion…Counterpoints Arts seeks to counter these simple lies by reframing the migrant experience through the prism of art, culture and the telling of human stories’ – Maurice Wren, CEO, UK Refugee Council
Thank you for considering donating to our work. Your donation will help us continue our work using the arts to change how we see migration and displacement. You will enable us to:
a. take nuanced and authentic narratives on migration to mainstream spaces & media
b. provide professional and financial support to artists from refugee and migrant backgrounds
c. strengthen national networks across sectors including arts charities, NGOs, philanthropy, education, advocacy and media in order to bring about social change
We believe that this is a cause worth pursuing and an opportunity to get involved in transforming society.
