Social Arts Festival is a non-profit – fundraising event. This is the 3rd year of its existence and due to Covid19, we’ll go online to celebrate an incredible work of artists from all over the world. This particular uncertain time we are living now gives us space to create and perform. Festival is about the manifestation of human rights violations and social injustice. We can bring up all the frustrations and injustice, any pain, violation of our rights during this difficult time we are living. The lockdown is a perfect time to create for those who are well and would like to do something good to humanity and its a great time to watch your work from the comfort of each one home. Let’s express our emotions good and bad, whatever they are and create excellent work in order to give hope to those who suffer either they lost their loved ones or they are fighting for their lives. Let’s manifest our pain, struggle, the deepest emotions and point of view through different forms of performing arts such as dance, theatre, circus, music, film, and many more.

You can be anywhere in the world and perform it even from your room, park, forest, sea,…The only requirement is a good internet connection on your device: smartphone/tablet/computer and zoom.
