The 3rd Platforma Conference on the arts, refugees and migration will take place in Leicester 4-6 November.

Platforma is the arts and refugees network, managed by Counterpoints Arts with our partners across England, and supported by ACE and Baring Foundation. Previous conferences have taken place in London (2011) and Manchester (2013).

On 4 November we are holding a half-day conference on the arts, refugees and migration outside England (whether based here or not), looking at potential for new international partnerships and collaborations. This will be at The Curve Theatre, supported by Department of Media and
Communication at University of Leicester.

The main conference will take place at De Montfort University 5-6 November (supported by DMU and ArtReach), exploring aspects of practice and research relating to the arts, refugees and migration. Speakers and workshop leaders will include academics, artists from all backgrounds and other practitioners.

Tickets cost £10 per day – free to students or anyone on low/zero wage.

There is an associated programme of performances and exhibitions as part of the Platforma Festival, including a new commission of Internal Terrains by Natasha Davis, as well as performances of The Edge by Transport Theatre, and Nine Lives by Zodwa Nyoni.
