Refugee Week will launch in London on 19 June at the Southbank Centre as part of their world famous Meltdown festival – curated this year by Guy Garvey.
Under the heading of Refugees Welcome, there will be an entire day of free activity in collaboration with Refugee Week partners. Musicians, poets and dancers will pop-up across the site, and the marketplace will host activities and craft workshops in a day produced in collaboration with Counterpoints Arts.
The activity will culminate in The Boat We’re In, a free concert with Meltdown Director Guy Garvey, Mercury Prize nominated folk singer Nick Mulvey, Radio 6 Music favourite Nadine Shah, northern soul singer Josephine Oniyama and the Southbank Sinfonia amongst the performers.
Across the Royal Festival Hall there will be small boats installed as part of a project working with refugee communities.
