As a registered City of Sanctuary, the city of Bristol UK, has been celebrating it’s diverse cultural society for years. Central to these celebrations is the Bristol Refugee Festival, an annual display of the art, music, food, and beauty of the city’s migrant and arrived populations.
Last month, as part of our Artists as Changemakers conference series, our host Dr Chris Nicholson sat down with Danny Vincent from the festival, to discuss how a festival like this comes together and the crucial work of long-term community engagement.
You can see more of the festival on their website.
