FESTIVAL31 aims to showcase and support the broadest possible cross section of artistic and creative activity linked to our themes

FESTIVAL31 is an annual, month-long celebration of refugee arts and culture that aims to bring diverse communities together through creative and social activity. We believe that the sharing of our experiences allows us not only to empathise with others, but helps us to highlight what we have in common and increase understanding between local and exiled communities. The theme of this year’s festival will be ‘Under The Surface’, although submissions to this open call can reflect on any aspect of refugee experience.
