Journeys Festival International

Journeys Festival International celebrates the creative talent of exceptional refugee and asylum seeker artists and shares the refugee experience through great art.

This year's festival brings us 15 days of cultural highlights.

The festival explores the refugee experience through a whole range of free arts activities including live music, hands-on artist-led workshops, theatre, performance, film, discussion, exhibitions, storytelling and pop-up events.

Journeys Festival International aims to bring the talent of local, national and international refugee artists to the general public - creating a positive interface with the community.
