Armed conflict is the cause of many people having to flee their homes and seek refuge in a safe environment. Governments invest millions on weapons of destruction. This money could be spent on more socially useful projects.
The aim is to attract a wide range of people to musical and spoken word events and workshops promoting peace and social justice.
The aims of the festival are to
(1) educate people about war and its devastating effects on people ,e.g creating refugees
(2) educate people about refugees. What causes people to leave their homes, jobs and family
(3) bring people together - to recognise that we have more in common than differences
(4) get people involved in community groups that are working with refugees, or for peace and social justice.
The aim is to make this an annual event.
The messages are:
➢ Build homes not bombs
➢ Say no to racism
➢ Welcome refugees
➢ Invest in renewable energy not nuclear weapons
