Refugee Week World Music and Arts festival – highlights
MAC Outdoor Theatre
Dance music needn’t come with a kicking bass drum. If you can capture hummingbird flight on a recorder or a pan pipe, and Kausary can, then we can all join in flitting from flower to flower (OK, foot to foot) with big, stupid grins on our dad dancing mushes (dad dancing is now officially gender neutral and available to all – in fact, I’m thinking of setting up a class in Bearwood. Doesn’t so much keep you fit as keep you regular).
Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. Founded in 1998 and held every year around World Refugee Day on the 20 June, Refugee Week is also a growing global movement.

Hamilton High was born on Doheny Ave in the gutter, is a poet, writer and observer of popular culture. Likes fashion and cares less for style. He's on the move, he's an alter ego and we hardly ever hear from him.

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
