The 23rd Day-Mer Festival is made possible by Turkish, Kurdish and Cypriot migrant workers’ determination, sacrifices and hard work, and is again starting with jubilation and excitement.
Day-Mer Culture and Arts Festival is continuing to be the longest serving and the most popular festival in North London. This longevity and popularity is directly related to Day-Mer trying to make it a community festival. The issues faced by our communities, settled in London since 1990s, are deepening by the day as living conditions of working people in England is worsening. The political stance towards immigrant workers in the UK is serving to distance immigrants and in a way pulls the carpet from under their feet, making it harder to adapt to the life in the UK.
