April 20–26: Asylfestival

Thank you to all the 300 people who joined the opening party of CAMP (Center for Art on Migration Politics) last Friday and Dady de Maximo’s amazing fashion show! We will post photos and video from the event and the exhibition Camp Life on CAMP’s facebook page later this week.

This week is also going to be awesome. From Thursday–Saturday, April 23–25, Trampoline House will host the Asylfestival. The festival was created by an independent group of refugees, activists, artists, and volunteers based in Copenhagen and aims to connect the many different groups and individuals working around asylum seeker and refugee issues in Denmark, so we can share ideas and learn from each other ways to break the system. It will include a varied schedule – from academic lectures and panel discussions to film screenings, creative writing and radio workshops, dance performances and more.
