Border Crossings’ Origins Festival

A two-week programme of art, spectacle and discussion celebrating indigenous cultures

10 June 2017 – 25 June 2017 | Visit website

Border Crossings' Origins Festival returns for another year delivering a programme full of theatre, music, film, dance, talks and art exhibitions that engage with and celebrate the indigenous peoples of the world. Many of the events are free, however some are ticketed.

Indigenous artists, intellectuals and activists come together to share their spirit of cultural resistance, environmentalism and spiritual tradition. Some of the free highlights include author Chiara Minestrelli's Australian Indigenous Hip-hop book launch at Rich Mix, which climaxes in a performance from Mau Power and Pasifika, a day-long celebration of Maori, Samoan and other Polynesian cultures at Emslie Horniman's Pleasance featuring music, dance and food.

Border Crossings' Origins Festival takes place throughout London from June 10-25. Ticket prices vary, but lots of events are free!
