The Immigration//Représentation Festival

The Immigration//Représentation Festival final event on the 30th of March was fantastic and Songo played for what seemed like ages encouraged by the brilliant dancing audience. Their energy was endless but we had to stop eventually!Temple 01

The event brought awareness of immigration issues to light and especially the cultural benefits gained and the the struggle that many people face for freedom of thought, life, health and opportunity to contribute to their surrounding communities.

At the Templeworks buildings in Leeds, STAR hosted the exciting program of original installations, live performances and interactive workshops, all to celebrate the endless ways that you could (RE)present yourself on your own terms.

This was an event organised by Georgina Buchanan and his friends from STAR project which stands for Student Action for Refugees from Leeds University.
