We will explore how marginalised communities use the arts, media and creativity to challenge exclusion. The festival hopes to shed light on the local and global dynamics that rupture, alienate, and marginalise communities and the creative tools used to address and tackle disenfranchisement. Bringing together activists, artists, academics and policy-makers, the festival aims to create new networks and facilitate local, national, and global debates surrounding the arts, media, diversity and inequality.



The current uncertainties around immigration, cultural difference, rights and responsibilities have resurfaced global debates on colonialism, borders, race, and resistance and brought to light the creativity that these circumstances produce. With this in mind, theaim of this interdisciplinary festival is to explore why and how particular kinds of creative forms, textures and (alternative) aesthetics are used in arts and activism. What is it about theatre, film, or the digital medium that makes each of them the most appropriate or enabling forms and spaces to communicate, share and enable activist messages, for example around race and class politics? In what circumstances does everyday creativity constitute a creative intervention?
