Project Description

Journeys Festival was developed by ArtReach in 2013, emerging from its ongoing work with Refugee and Asylum Seeker Artists through the national Platforma initiative and network. The Festival will be presented with a wealth of new content in Leicester, as part of the City Festival, on 24 and 25 August 2014. Particularly exciting is the inclusion of a new Kite Festival ingredient, celebrating a range of different cultures, and the presentation of the newly released Leave to Remain feature film (which has powerful content exploring refugee issues) and with members of the production team committed to workshop delivery as part of the Festival programme.
