Young creatives, we want to hear from you!

Want to join Refugee Week Greece, Youth Ambassadors?

Are you:

–  based in Greece

– 18 to 25 years old?

– A young creative who is interested in socially engaged arts

– A fun person to work with!

We are looking for young people between 18-25 years old to become our Youth Ambassadors and help us shape the Festival for 2023. We will meet once every month for 1-2 hours and talk about the Festival, discuss ideas and next steps, so that you support us in decisions about the Festival Program. Also, if you also want to show your work during the Festival, we will support you with the appropriate space and promotion of your work.

What you will be helping us with:

– strategic planning of the festival

– suggest ideas on how to better engage young people and communities

– suggest and showcase art and sports for the festival (music, dance, films, visual arts and sports)

– help spread the word about the festival (writing stories, social posts, taking photos)

We would love to meet young people who love the arts, festivals and events and get creative. You can bring a friendly and critical perspective to how our festival is produced, whilst adding their touch to our program. The aim is to keep an open mind and all opinions are welcomed and shared!

Refugee Week is a global and dynamic movement, a cultural festival celebrating creativity! It is community-led and try to become fully accessible.

We strongly believe in the importance and values of equality and diversity. Our aim is to understand and celebrate our diverse community and recognise the value of each individual’s contribution.

This year is taking place between 19-25 June 2023.

We  are looking for four Youth Ambassadors who either had lived displacement experiences, but mainly young people who are artists and creatives, across Greece ensuring that we remain true to our original vision and to our communities.
