Journeys Festival International celebrates the creative talent of exceptional refugee
and asylum seeker artists and shares refugee experiences through great art and culture.
Produced by ArtReach, the Festival takes place for the third year in Manchester from 4 – 14 October. The Festival takes place at various locations and venues across Manchester.
Working across a wide range of creative media and disciplines, Journeys Festival International aims to bring the exceptional talent of local, national and international refugee artists into the public eye. Journeys Festival International combines live music, workshops, theatre, performance, moving image, screenings, discussion, exhibitions and pop-up events to create a vibrant and engaging programme of events.
In addition to the core team that produces and manages the Festival, we are seeking a team of enthusiastic social media support volunteers. Get behind the scenes at our events, experience event management in depth and get your content contributing to our detailed social media coverage of the Festival.
As well as covering expenses for all volunteers, we hope that participating in the event will provide a rewarding and enjoyable experience!
