Led by producers of Journeys Festival International ArtReach, the JOURNEYS European project aimed to support the integration of refugees through art on a local level in seven European cities in five different countries.


JOURNEYS events took place throughout 2017 in Rome, Budapest, Palermo and Hamburg, in addition to our Festivals in Leicester, Manchester and Portsmouth.



Look Up project will enable a high profile outdoor art exhibition presenting visual art work from refugee artists on a large canvas in each city.


The Container Project will support the creation of pop-up theatre performances and the making and screening of short new moving image productions to share refugee stories.


JOURNEYS Seminars will bring together artists, with refugee support groups and the wider public, to explore ideas and issues arising from the arts activity and its themes. Exciting times!
