About this Event

Heyup!

LOVE is in the air!

Our 4th 'Refugee Valentine' is organized on the 14th of February 2020 from 7pm to 11pm, by Sussex Refugee and Migrant Self Support Group (SRMSSG) to celebrate love and celebrate diversity.

We have a line up of local refugee and migrant bands bringing the music of their international origins to create a night that defies categorization as either global or local.

Headlined by:

1) Bakk Lamp Fall: West African Fusion - with roots in Baye Fall Sufism from Touba (Senegal). The line-up of the band comprises outstanding West-African percussion accompanied by an ensemble of eminent UK instrumentalists, topped with the awesome vocal power of their Senegalese singer Khadim Sarr.

3) Jack C Nielsen is a singer-songwriter, old school style folks tunes along the lines of Neil Young. Jack Is from Australia and will bring the sunny vibes to his music.

Organisers Objective.

SRMSSG believe Love transcends borders. The authorities throw up barriers to divide communities into homogeneous societies of ‘us’ and ‘them’. Refugees are people who have already crossed borders to find love in new communities. They can show the rest of us the way to transcend difference. The border makes refugees the Other, but love thrives on difference. Refugee Valentine celebrates love and celebrates diversity. It’s our differences that bring us together. Refugee Valentines will take love beyond monogamous pair bonding to begin rebuilding a community that celebrates difference.

This is why we would like you to join us on the 14th of February and celebrate different shades of your LOVE with us. It’s our differences that bring us together.

Refugee Valentine will take love beyond monogamous pairings to begin rebuilding a community that celebrates difference.

LOVE MORE.

See you all!
