23.06.2017 – 24.06.2017 I Beats Collective Festival

Friends and Friends of Friends!
This is a call to all of you out there!

Let us introduce you to Beats Collective festival participating in the Refugee week: A weekend of music, workshops, panel discussions, short film screenings, exhibitions and many more activities to entertain the little and big ones!
Join the beat family!

From the start of 2017, over 58 000 asylum seekers in Greece were waiting for their asylum claim to be heard and processed.
The prospect of relocation and to change their future situation is still very uncertain.Therefore Beats Collective will dedicate its entire income from the festival to support ECHO Refugee Library: successfully debuted in August 2016 with their Library in the Vasilika Refugee camp (Greece) and their mobile Library servicing Refugee camps in the Thessaloniki area (Greece) to equip asylum seekers with the skills and knowledge to aid their future resettlement in a new country.
