About

Who we are

Approach

We run an ongoing programme of events highlighting local refugee artists, refugee and migrant artists from across the country, and visiting international artists. This programme includes our regular music series and refugee week world music festival. Our annual festival is a part of National Refugee Week celebrations. 

We run regular events across the city at venues such as the ORT Cafe, MAC, The Old Print Works and Centrala. We have also created partnerships with and presented events at Symphony Hall Jazzlines, The IKON Gallery, The Library of Birmingham, Tin Music and Arts in Coventry, Flatpack Festival and BE Festival, Moseley Folk Festival and Simmer Down Festival. 

We work collaboratively with partnership organisations from the arts, refugee and community sectors to build and sustain a thriving diverse arts culture in Birmingham inclusive of artists in exile. We also provide artists for many events and performances run by partner organisations. As we are always exploring new partnerships and seeking out new venues and opportunities, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
