Counterpoints Arts

We constituted as a new Yorkshire and Humberside Network for Arts and Refugees in 2009, as a regional response to a 3 year national research-based consultation which highlighted the urgent need for cohesive support, development and signposting into our creative industries, for artists with backgrounds of involuntary or voluntary migration into the UK.

As a network of artists of all kinds, we believe in the quality, strength and resonance of creativity that comes from displacement and social differences, and that cultural diversity in the arts propels, refreshes and sustains the creative process.
