Spotlight on Asylum Festival

PramDepot presents Spotlight on Asylum, a two-month exhibition of events, which will be running at Karamel from 7th September until 20th November 2018.

Bringing together artists, poets, comedians, campaigners and politicians, the festival will use the arts as a way of engaging audiences and shining a light on the experiences of the women that PramDepot supports.

All the money raised through Spotlight on Asylum, will go to the yearly running costs of PramDepot : An arts led recycling project that provides high quality baby clothes and equipment to mothers with no recourse to public funds or living in chaotic circumstances. For more information about our work you can visit the website or Facebook page PramDepot
