Global Migrant Festival 2020

The Global Migrant Festival is an online arts and literary festival that foregrounds the stories and experiences of low-wage migrant workers and refugees. The organisers of the festival see the arts a window into the human condition, and seek to use it as a medium to have the voices of these communities heard. We speak to two of the festival’s featured performers: Warsan Weedhsan, co-director of the archipelago writers collective; and, Sugiarti, winner of 2019 Singapore Migrant Worker Poetry Competition.
