Soapbox – To imagine

As part of World Refugee Day and Midsummer Festival, Ikon and Celebrating Sanctuary Birmingham have compiled quick-fire, home-produced, soapbox videos on the theme of Refugee Week 2020: “To ‘imagine’ means to picture something you can’t currently see. To step beyond the current moment, and perceive something different.” #RefugeeWeek2020  #BhamRefugeeWeek  #Imagine

Soapbox will be followed by a showcase of Celebrating Sanctuary Birmingham’s commissions for Refugee Week 2020.

The film is available to watch on this page and Ikon’s YouTube channel.
