We are already looking forward to the festival programme for 2018 including continuing work with artists Benyamin and Urbain, and also supporting a new relationship with talented artist Afshin Amini. See below for more.
OPEN CALL EXHIBITION:
We’re also working with wider artists from a range of disciplines and backgrounds to create an open exhibition of work reflecting on refugee experiences. Work will be shown at the Unity Theatre and online during the festival, with other pop-up exhibitions that we’ll let you know about closer to the time.
