About the Festival
The first-ever Global Migrant Festival was held in Singapore on 15-16 December, 2018.
The Festival sought to provide a platform for broader, critical, human-centric perspectives and dialogues on migration, in context of often vitriolic narratives that have dominated discussions on migration in Asia and across the world. It featured over 200 performers from 25 regions defined by borders in an array of cultural performances, talks, films and panel discussions involving artists, economic migrants, refugees, academic experts and community advocates from non-profit organisations. The finals of the annual Migrant Worker Poetry Competition (Singapore) were held as part of the Festival.
The festival will be back in 2020. Follow our Facebook page for affiliated events and other updates
