Platforma supports and develops arts by, about and with refugees and migrants from marginalised communities.
It brings together groups and artists of any background or political status (e.g. refugees and non-refugees), whose work examines the varied experiences of refugees both before and after they’ve arrived and settled in their host country.
The Platforma network is managed by Counterpoints Arts in partnership with organisations including CAN across the country. Every two years they run the Platforma Festival – the first was held in London (2011) , then CAN hosted the one in Manchester (2013) and the third will be in Leicester (November 2015).
