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.
