We have a packed week of events celebrating International Arts and Global Cultures. Horizons Festival will showcase the best in contemporary creativity, raise awareness, challenge stereotypes and bring the communities of our city together.

The Launch day on Saturday 15 June features a community marketplace, performances, films, exhibitions and workshops including storytelling, theatre, dance, circus skills, music; most of which is FREE and family-friendly.

The festival profiles CAN's current artists in residence Seyed Ali Jaberi and The Hamdel Ensemble, and associates MIRO and Amani Creatives. You can also catch Seyed Ali Jaberi and The Hamdel Ensemble on their national tour at Migration Matters Festival in Sheffield, St George's Bristol, St Giles' Cathedral as part of Edinburgh Fringe Festival, SAGE Gateshead and Symphony Hall in Birmingham.
