About us

Counterpoints Arts is a leading national organisation operating in the field of arts, migration and social change. We commission, produce and co-curate arts projects with a diverse array of artists and cultural institutions, including the Tate, V&A and Southbank Centre. We also coordinate Refugee Week, the UK’s largest arts and culture festival celebrating the contribution of refugees and promoting understanding of why people seek sanctuary.

We believe that the arts is a powerful catalyst for change in relation to migration, therefore much of our work focuses on supporting artists who have experienced displacement and artists who are committed to exploring and amplifying the migration story.
