The Yellow Days shows that there is more that unites than divides us. Held in 2017 on the island of Leros, the first instalment of the festival brought together people of 30 different nationalities and cultures, forming enduring friendships between local and refugee attendees, creating powerful solidarity in the midst of climate of division that has fed off a fear of our perceived differences. Beyond this, the festival forged lasting networks on the island, raising €2000 worth of first necessity aid for Pikpa refugee camp and €1000 to the local hospital in Leros. With its greater scope and attendance, the Yellow Days 2019 is focused on making our projects even more impactful and sustainable, while generating funds and larger networks of support for the initiatives we work with directly.

In 2016, Yellow Days founder Nina Alonso travelled to the island of Leros to volunteer in Pikpa
refugee camp. As a resident of London’s Harringay Warehouse District, a DIY district filled with
artists and activists, she saw how her home community could contribute towards the wellbeing of
refugees and locals in Leros. The Yellow Days collective formed to do what they do best –
throwing a unique event to bring people together. Following the first festival in 2017, twelve
friends from six nationalities work between three countries to fundraise and organise towards our
We believe that respect for the planet is vitally connected to respect for fellow human beings. We
see the humanitarian crisis as linked to and mirroring the lack of respect and love that modern
societies have for the environment. By minimising waste and amplifying environmental
awareness at every stage, the festival demonstrates the possibility of a healthier relationship to
the earth. At the 2017 edition, a colourful canopy of repurposed materials inspired eco-crafting
and acted as a talking point on the environment. We are already gathering plastic and cardboard
‘waste’ to upcycle into this year’s festival decoration.
