WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF CREATIVE ACTION TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

The Yellow Days Festival is our approach to the humanitarian crisis.  Activism meets hedonism.  A cultural festival where we gather all the cultures currently living in Athens; the refugee community, Greek locals, and humans from around Europe.  We are coming together to highlight our similarities and celebrate our differences.

★We use food, art, music and environmental awareness as the tools to connect and heal.

★The Yellow Days aims are;

! Create a platform for all the collectives, tribes, movements, and communities to connect and collaborate with one another.

! Use art as a tool to heal and empower.

! Environmental awareness; educate, inspire and take action.

! Raise funds & first necessity aid for organisations in need, such as 'Pikpa' refugee camp.

! Showcase cultures and traditional activities.

! Create a positive impact proving the power of people when coming together. 

★The first celebration of The Yellow Days Festival was on the island of Leros, Greece in the summer of 2017. Over 4 days across two sites people from 35 different nationalities and cultures curated an open environment with a diverse program of art, music, food, film and education.

Our story


Friends-turned-activists, our grassroots movement started in the Harringay warehouse community. Inspired by a volunteer experience in Pikpa Refugee Camp, Leros, Greece, we now recognise humanitarian work should go beyond the first wave of necessities. Using our skills, passions and experience as an authentically diverse collective, we created a movement that focuses on connecting humans through our commonalities. We provide a celebratory safe-space for cultural exchange, learning and growing together.

The festival is self-funded by the events and parties we host and produce in London. Every event is a small representation of The Yellow Days festival.

The money cycle:

1. Put on events and/or parties

2. Generate funds during the events/parties

4. Put on The Yellow Days Festival with the money raised from the events/parties

5. Generate funds during The Yellow Days festival

6. Use the funds to support different organisations collectives and communities and keep the yellow ball rolling (continuing to put on events/parties and bringing people together for social & creative action)

The Yellow Days 2017 donated; 1000€ worth of nappies & underwear (upon request) to Pikpa refugee camp and 1000€ to the Blood Bank of Leros
