Journeys Festival International is going virtual, for its Online Arts Festival 2020.
Journeys Festival International is an annual arts festival that celebrates the creative talent of exceptional artists from sanctuary-seeking backgrounds. It shares experiences of refugee and asylum-seeking communities through artistic and creative encounters. Usually, Journeys Festival takes place in Leicester, Portsmouth and Manchester, but as a result of Covid-19 response the festival this year will take place digitally across a number of platforms available to all.
Festival organisers work with artists from around the world to commission, programme and curate a festival that is a vibrant mix of performance, visual art, film, literature, workshops and discussions. The full list of events and all the relevant details will be released in August.
Journeys Festival International is proud to be the UK's first Festival of Sanctuary, accredited by City of Sanctuary.
