Journeys Festival Website Launch

ArtReach is delighted to announce that the brand new website for Journeys Festival is up and running! You can visit now at www.journeysfestival.com.

The new website completes the ArtReach ”family” of sites which includes www.nightoffestivals.com and www.northwoodcommunityarts.co.uk, another successful project created and directed by ArtReach.

Journeys Festival was first presented in Leicester’s Town Hall Square, as part of the Mayor’s new and exciting City Festival, in August 2013. The programme presented Refugee Artists of all disciplines; musicians, painters, poets, moving image makers and performers. The artists brought tales of their astonishing journeys, and their experiences of seeking sanctuary in this country. Over the Bank Holiday weekend Journeys Festival saw 60 different Refugee Artists perform to an audience of 6000.

Look out for more information about the development of Journeys Festival shortly!
