Equality and Social Change through Performance and the Arts

 

Voices of Migration addresses the current fractures in politics, culture, society and global affairs, which has resulted in incidents, fears about security and threats to community cohesion. 

We will bring people together in solidarity, who often are not able to occupy the same spaces. The festival and partners are intent on reflecting a 21st century multicultural Aarhus.

 

ARTISTS AND SPEAKERS INCLUDE:

Carl Jóhan Jensen              Khaterah Parwani

Jon Atli Jónasson               Poyâ Pâkzâd

Charlie Dark                        Chadi Abdul-Karim

Rethink Human Being and Færre Fremmede I Verden are delighted to be part of Voices of Migration. We are dedicated to help create spaces for reflection on what it is to be human and how we are connected. Migration creates meetings – and any meeting can be perceived either as a thread or an opportunity – we see this festival as an attempt to create awareness of the latter and want to support that

We are very proud to be part of Voices of Migration as the festival explores a highly relevant and important topic that affects the arts, democracy, social cohesion, and the individual.
