Counterpoints Arts engages with refugee and migrant experiences through arts and cultural programmes. Its mission is to support and produce the arts by and about migrants and refugees, seeking to ensure that their contributions are recognized and welcomed within British arts, history and culture. Central to the mission is our belief in the ability of the arts to inspire social change and enhance inclusion & cultural integration of refugees & migrants.  Counterpoints Arts manages Refugee Week and the national Platforma network on arts by, about and with refugees.

Greenwich Dance is the home of dance in South East London. An extraordinary meeting place for artists, audiences and communities; they make the space for great dance to happen through incubation, creation, participation and performance. They challenge perceptions and change lives through excellence and innovation. Greenwich Dance aims to set the standard for dance locally, nationally and internationally.
