Inspired by the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre, Journeys Festival International presents an Easterner’s perspective on protest and post-revolutionary art and culture from Iran.
Omid Asadi, Parham Ghalamdar and Mahboobeh Rajabi, three Iranian artists who now call Manchester home, have been invited to present their work and research to give an insight into how the 1979 revolution has changed the way art is made and presented in Iran. An informal conversation between the artists and audience will follow the presentations.
Journeys Festival International celebrates the creative talent of exceptional refugee and asylum seeker artists and shares the refugee experience through great art.
