About Us

Highlight Arts creates new narratives through personal interactions, collaborations and exchange in the context of conflict: inequality, prejudice, war or environmental disaster.

We organise festivals, curate new artistic collaborations and generate new work.

Established in 2007 as Reel Festivals we became Highlight Arts in 2014.

We have a track record of delivering highly engaging, provocative work, using all forms of the arts to explore pressing and contemporary geo-­political issues, working with innovative and progressive artists from the UK and abroad.
