Refugee Week World Music and Arts festival – highlights
Sunday 20 June at 3pm – Online Event
If there was to be an international instrument of humanity that would be played at the first courtly dance of welcome for mystified visitors from the vicinity of a white dot of a star many years away then it would have to be the kora, as stroked and immaculately plucked by Kadialy Kouyate. We would all trip out together in bliss. And then the aliens would eat us, carefully, without making a mess and we would all be happy about it.
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.
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]
