Produced by Blaze, this entirely young people powered programme celebrates creativity, heritage and diversity. The Festival of Hope is a pioneering festival that places young people at the heart of design, making, programming and production.
In Refugee Awareness Week last year, we launched our intention to work in partnership with Artreach. We wanted to find out more about how art and creativity were being used to support refugee children, particularly in schools, and to look for any gaps and opportunities to support, to innovate, to fundraise, or to invest.
Dan Williamson, ArtReach Producer for Journeys Festival International, shares some insights from his research work with Curious Minds about how creative and cultural education can support child refugees as they settle in new communities.
How can arts and culture give our young people hope? Curious Minds' Head of Innovation and Inclusion, Kelly Allen, shares her thoughts on the role that arts and culture can play in improving mental wellbeing for children and young people
