The Migrant Festival

14 July — 17 July 2022

Ikon presents the fourth annual Migrant Festival – a four day programme mixing visual art, music, film and performance. The festival celebrates the contribution made by refugees and migrants to Birmingham and the UK, and highlights the migrant stories of artists in Ikon’s programme, including Abdulrazaq Awofeso and Osman Yousefzada.

For the 2022 festival, Ikon will work closely with local partners such as Celebrating Sanctuary Birmingham, Migrant Voice and the Black Arts Forum to share the experiences of Birmingham’s migratory communities with a wide audience. As ever, it will include our annual Soapbox event featuring quick-fire presentations from individuals and groups supporting migrants in the Midlands.
