Southbank Centre’s Summer Festival in 2016, Festival of Love, explores love of humanity and how we can make the world a better place for one another.
The Centre has been searching across the UK, through friends, partners and public nominations to find people and projects that are working to make a difference to the lives of their community around them, or whose stories inspire others to make change.
They have chosen Micro Rainbow International Director of Social and Economic Inclusion as one of their Change Makers.
“We are thrilled that MRI’s Director Ms Power has received this recognition. Her humanity, commitment to LGBTI equality and creativity have changed the lives of hundreds of LGBTI asylum seekers and refugees over more than a decade” said Sebastian Rocca, Founder and CEO of MRI. “She has tirelessly dedicated her time and energy to projects that not only make a difference and transform people’s lives but also create a more equal society. We want to congratulate Ms Power for this achievement, she is a change maker and a role model in society” Mr Rocca continued.
The 2016 Change Makers all stand as inspiring examples of how to harness creativity, innovation, courage and determination for the common good. Some have used the arts in powerful ways that demonstrate the potential of music, dance and literature to enrich lives.
