This year’s festival embraces the national Refugee Week theme ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’, taken from Martin Luther King’s iconic I have a Dream speech; the speech that called for all people of all backgrounds to join together in the fight for freedom, a rallying call which resonates across time and space.
Presented by HOME in partnership with Community Arts North West, the festival celebrates the enduring power of creativity and the incredible international artists who have made Manchester their home, with a provocative and stimulating programme of film, theatre, music, performance, and discussion, presented live and online.
Among the many highlights of this year’s festival will be a day of music and spoken work on the Manchester Stage at Homeground, HOME’s temporary outdoor venue, featuring performances from Luma Trio, North West Turkish Community Association Dance Group, Afrocats Youth Showcase, Gazelleband, Bayan Ensemble and Gemima Band.
Horizon’s Festival is made possible by the support from the Leri Charitable Trust.
