We come together in this moment in history to create a collective performance of play and solidarity. Depending on where we are, we are called: refugees, migrants and locals. We are all building communities and creating possibilities for new kinds of conversations.

You are invited to perform the world with us and to help create new possibilities!

Groups are being organised locally in: Canada (Vancouver), Greece (Thessaloniki and Lesvos), Italy (Martino), France (Paris),  Germany (Berlin), Luxembourg (Luxembourg), Mexico (Juarez), Romania (Baia Mare), Serbia (Belgrade), Syria, Turkey (San Ulfa), UK (London), USA (NY and SF).

TOGETHER, we will:

  • Participate in a shared online call
  • Create music, poetry, art and performances across borders
  • Talk with one another
  • Launch an online fundraiser

The fundraiser will support Play is Hope: its operations and its grassroots collaborations and joint performance activism projects with other local organisers around the world. 10% of the funds will be donated to the open refugee camp Pikpa & the educational and cultural centre Mosaic.

Creating Community Across Borders is being organized by Play is Hope in partnership with East Side Institute and the Performing the World Community.

The event is happening on the 4th of March 1pm EST (local times vary around the world, please find out more through email).
