With the theme 'Come As You Are', LIFT 2018 celebrated community by exploring London's local, national and international identity and telling urgent global stories.

London is a city whose beating heart is diversity, and at LIFT, internationalism is in our DNA. LIFT 2018 celebrated cultural diversity, bringing artists from around the world to use the city as their stage.
