WORLD REFUGEE DAY

CHANGING OUR PERSPECTIVES ON REFUGEES

On June 20th, World Refugee Day, Musicians without Borders commemorates the situation of millions of people who were forced to flee their country. Together with Amsterdam Roots Festival and Pakhuis de Zwijger we explore the perspectives on refugees. How can we positively challenge and change these perspectives in the Netherlands? What kind of role can the media, arts, artists and grassroots movements play?

Expect an event full of music, art performances, inspiring speakers, grassroots initiatives and interesting discussions. Program maker, writer and journalist Bahram Sadeghi will moderate the evening.

In cooperation with Amsterdam Roots Festival, Pakhuis De Zwijger, Framer Framed, Cineblend, The Hague Peace Projects, Voice4Thought, We Are Here, Oriental Landscapes and others.
