Platforma is a biennial festival that spotlights local and national work about displacement and migration. Each edition of the festival takes place in a different part of the UK, showcasing new work and bringing together artists, educators, organisations, funders and others to share practice and build networks. Previous Platforma festivals have been in London 2011, Manchester 2013, Leicester 2015 and Newcastle, Gravesend & Stockton 2017.
The Platform 5 programme this year will take place across Kent & Medway. The highlights include stand-up comedy in Gravesend & Sittingbourne, hip hop in Ramsgate, a 5-day takeover at Turner Contemporary, new photographic portraits by Aida Silverstri and a community meal with Custom & Lucky Moyo in Folkestone, and a week of pop culture at Gulbenkian in Canterbury.
