About Us


​The Global Migrant Festival seeks to: 

  • Promote multiculturalism

  • Provide a platform for low wage migrant workers and refugees to have their voices heard

  • Understand human perspectives of migration

  • Discuss key cross-cutting issues related to migration, including health, economics, safety, art and gender.


We believe the issues covered at the Festival have become increasingly relevant, given that regular and irregular migration is a defining trend with significant social, cultural, economic and political implications for both host and source countries.​

The festival is held once every two years.


The festival is organised by a group of volunteers under the Migrant Worker Poetry Competition organising committee led by Shivaji Das.
