Velela! was a two-week creative residency in London for young artists. This Pop-up Festival produced by Phakama marked the organisation’s fifteenth anniversary. It took place from 16-30 June 2012 and involved voices, talents, expertise and contributions from almost 100 young people from around the world.

To catch up on some of the projects, conversations and performances please read the Festival Magazine.

Velela! gave the necessary space for young people to explore some of the most pressing challenges of our time.

They experimented, developed skills, collaborated, exchanged ideas, rehearsed and celebrated new ways of living and making art in response to the world.
