About the CLINCH Festival

CLINCH is a festival that focuses on the perspectives of BIPoC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour), migrants and Jews. In discussions, artistic and interactive formats, CLINCH addresses struggles against oppressive and discriminatory structures in our societies, debates on history(s) and theories and visions for the future.

The CLINCH Festival 2023 is also about points of friction in our political standpoints, searching and finding connections and strategies to overcome them. How can we be in solidarity with each other in the simultaneity of different positions and what does this solidarity look like? How can we strengthen ourselves and each other? How can we confront conflicts within our communities? And what does community mean anyway?
