Home / Projects / Migration / VOICES – Voices of solidarity


  • To enable artists from different European countries to work together to coordinate cohesive joined-up performance making visible the voices of refugees and asylum seekers and encourage integration through the collaborative parade/celebration event
  • To involve refugees, migrants and other disadvantaged communities in each partner location in the creation and delivery of a celebratory cultural event/parade highlighting themes of arrival and welcome.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance and widen engagement with arts and culture and to facilitate new and rich ways of enabling audience participation and involvement.
  • Build new pan-European partnership between cultural and community organisations and new professional development for participating artists.


  • Creation of four new 20-30 minute performance developed by artists from four countries.
  • Delivery of site-specific joined-up presentations in six locations using a combination of the new performance pieces.
  • Making of four parade events that each involve a minimum of 100 target community participants – at least 50% refugees.


  • Achieved live audiences averaging at least 10.000 for each of the parades and 5.000 for performance presentations in each location.
  • Achieved substantial additional audiences (+ 500.000) through online engagement and broadcast media.
  • Professional development for European artists, practitioners and cultural leaders involved in the project.
