We’re hosting a two day youth-focused PopChange Retreat as part of the 5th Platforma Festival.
From gaming and hip hop, to vlogging, film and much more, we’re especially interested to hear from young people about what role pop culture might play in making social change around migration and displacement happen.
In the room will be artists, activists, media makers, cultural actors and young influencers. We have deliberately invited a rich mix of people who might not have previously worked together but who are (ideally) open to new ways of connecting, collaborating and co-producing.

PopChange is a pioneering project from Counterpoints Arts exploring how the power of pop culture can be harnessed for social change — shifting the way we talk, think and feel about migration and displacement.
