More details
On the 7th September between 2pm and midnight, come and join us at Cargo, London for a free festival of political and cultural debate, film and live music.

LoveDifference Festival will bring the best contemporary music, video art and film from the UK and Europe to three diverse English towns and cities, each of which has a unique recent experience of European immigration.

Mixing UK acts such as The Blessing and hot London electronica sensation Christopher D Ashley with successful Central European acts such as Muzykoterapia (Poland) and Ohm Square (Czech Republic), as well as dialogue artists, writers and filmmakers such as TS Eliot prize-winning poet George Szirtes (Hungary/UK), legendary British filmmaker Ken Loach and Polish artist Joanna Rajkowska (famous for installing a palm tree on Jerusalem Avenue in Warsaw) the festival celebrates cultural exchange and innovation like no other festival is currently attempting.

The Festival also brings together different cultural and political movements and organisations in England and Europe, including Compass Youth, the cultural representations of Poland and Hungary, Pulse Festival of Eastern European music, the Watershed Cinema in Bristol and the Northampton Arts Collective.

With a political as well as cultural edge, the LoveDifference Festival is a long overdue, updated take on an old-fashioned debate to promote a new European ideal of culture, travel, youth and exchange. It pulls European discussion away from tired clichés and into exciting fresh and young venues such as Cargo in London and The Fishmarket Gallery in Northampton.

LoveDifference Festival brings the political agenda down from the distant EU bureaucracy to grassroots level of the people whose everyday lives are affected by each and every decision.

On the 7th September between 2pm and midnight, come and join us at Cargo, London for a free festival of political and cultural debate, film and live music. We have an amazing line-up of speakers including

Chuka Umunna, Jon Cruddas MP, Sandra Cueva, Ildiko Takacs, Anna Tryc-Bromley,
Istvan Hegedus.

We will also be featuring an exciting showcase of video artists such as Joanna Rajkowska and Ani Vaseva without forgetting live music by Ohm Square and The Invisible.

Cargo is at 83 Rivington Street, Shoreditch, London. Nearest tube is Old Street. Check
