This all at unique area of Invalidovna in Prague! Look at the sections „Programme“ and „Profiles of the Artists“ for more detailed informations on the particular performances.

The RefuFest creates a space for people from all around the world to meet up and expresses solidarity with refugees. Thanks to music, dance, theatre and diverse experiences, The RefuFest offers its guests an opportunity to get to know other cultures more. The purpose of RefuFest is to show that Prague is a cosmopolitan centre where people of different religions, nationalities and cultures live together. The festival enables its visitors to go behind the borders of stereotypes, that are running in society, and fully enjoy what diversity can offer.

InBáze, z. s. The purpose of InBaze is to help immigrants and their families to integrate in the Czech Republic. We create a safe open space for Czech public abd migrants to meet, collaborate and enhancing their mutual understanding of each other.


Every year, our festival is willing to point on how important is the openminded attitude of the Czech majority towards foreign people for the whole society. But we have one more thing to stress this year. It is more and more evident that when we do not give our planet what it needs, we will soon be in the situation that no one will be able to fix. The current condition of the environment is a significant cause of migration. According to the estimates of IOM (International Organization for Migration), the number of people forced to leave their homes because of the impact of the environment is growing every year. Whilst nowadays this is only a matter of 50 million people, in 2050 the number may be four times higher, according to experts.

It is time to start the fight against climate change! This year‘s festival, which takes place from the 27th to the 28th of September in Prague Invalidovna venue, will be about migration as well as about climate change.
