Journeys Festival International

28 September 2020 to 18 October 2020Visit websiteBook tickets

The multi-city festival that celebrates the artistic talents of global refugees and asylum seekers is to launch its programme of work online this year.

For the first time in its history, Journeys Festival International (which normally takes place in the cities of Leicester, Manchester and Portsmouth), will be delivering its 2020 programme digitally, in order to react and adapt to the limitations placed on live performances due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

From 28 September - 18 October, the festival will explore different elements of the refugee experience and, living up to the festival's name, will share artwork and events created by international artists who have sought sanctuary in Europe with a national and global audience.
The Festival spans across exhibitions, artist-led workshops, music, film, performances and curated installations, allowing esteemed international artists and figures to share their incredible work, whilst simultaneously platforming young artists closer to home.

The festival is split into 3 themed chapters each representing the content included within that week, culminating with a chapter entitled Hope and Celebration.
