On 7-8 May, Arts 4 Human Rights will host a diverse and exciting selection of interactive workshops and performances that address some of the keys issues facing Europe today at the 2011 TransEuropa Festival within the unique space of Shoreditch’s Rochelle School, and the challenging environment of a London double decker bus on the move!. The festival is a week-long event organised by a team of activists, curators, students, and young professionals from throughout the continent and promotes the values of cultural and artistic exploration, transnational communication, and shared political responsibility.
A spectrum of artists from a variety of cultures and backgrounds explore themes pertinent to contemporary society. Using a plurality of mediums including film screenings, performances, talks, walks, and conferences, the festival examines issues of foremost importance for the future of Europe and European societies, bringing and building a transnational and trans-European perspective.
Some of the artists include the highly acclaimed and uniquely talented Inua Ellams, who recently completed a series of one man shows for the National Theatre. Katherina Radeva and Nell Phoenix also contribute their energy and talent to the festival, via a selection of interactive workshops, story-telling sessions, and spoken word performances.
The Unseen Tours are proud to be one of the groups also taking part in the festival. Working in conjunction with Arts for Human Rights, we will have a special edition of the Shoreditch tour that will pick up outside the Rochelle School at 2:15 pm. Please come out to support the festival and Henri if you are free that weekend.
