Leicester loved the return of Journeys Festival International

Journeys Festival International Leicester returned for a seventh successful year to showcase a range of engaging and emotive work. The 15-day Festival (15-30 August) celebrated the talents of refugee artists as well as the diversity of the refugee and asylum-seeker experience. Extending over the length of the programme and beyond were many visual arts exhibitions for festival-goers to take shelter from the changeable summer weather. The collaboration between artists, Sibomana and Farhad Berahman transformed the streets of Leicester with their Portrait of a City exhibition. There was also the Coming Home exhibition where local artists George Sfougaras and Linda Harding worked with ROOTS group
