Journey’s Festival International

Returning for a second year, Journeys Festival International is back at HOME celebrating the creative talent of exceptional refugee and asylum seeker artists, and sharing refugee experiences through great art and culture.

With Journeys Festival International popping up from Portsmouth to Palermo in 2017, this year’s #JFIMcr festival will be bigger than ever with more opportunities to get involved in workshops, discussions and Coffee Shop Conversations. Join us as we share and celebrate the incredible talent and stories of refugee and asylum seeker artists who now call Manchester home.
