Journeys Festival Manchester

As part of Journeys Festival International, Manchester Museum #JourneysFest Takeover saw the museum space taken over for the day with a host of activities including the International Kite Project, Conversation Corner, Pop Up Theatre performances, music from Sarah Yaseen and spoken word with Hafsah Aneela Bashir.

We showcased our work on parenting in Syrian refugee communities at The Manchester Museum. Our work focuses on helping parents and their children to recover from the traumatic experiences they have suffered as a result of war and fleeing their home country, working on ways to help them during displacement and resettlement.

The event was well-attended and attracted 2500 visitors during the day. It was covered by Syrian news channel Orient News.
