IKON PRESENTS THE FIFTH ANNUAL MIGRANT FESTIVAL (17 AUGUST – 3 SEPTEMBER).
This year’s festival features projects by three Birmingham photographers – Vanley Burke, Maryam Wahid and Ayesha Jones – who are collaborating with inner-city communities to share their stories of migration. The festival also includes artists’ talks, music events by Celebrating Sanctuary Birmingham and a family workshop.
HISTORY OF THE MIGRANT FESTIVAL
The 2022 festival was part of Ikon’s Arrivals programme, organised to coincide with the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
