24-25th August, Town Hall Square, Leicester
Returning for its second year, the Journeys Festival offers a mix of extraordinary and inspiring live music, performance, visual art, moving image, discussion and workshops over two days in August.
All of the work presented is by refugee and asylum-seeker artists or directly reflects the refugee experience. For more information about the line-up of arts, culture and music in this year’s event, go to the Journeys Festival website.
The Who Am I? exhibition includes clay sculptures created over a series of sessions during the summer of 2013 by young Afghans who are living in Leicester. The activities were run as a partnership between local artist Beate Dehnen and After18.
More background about the process of creating the artwork can be found on our blog post, Snakes and Sculptures.
