I am creating and leading the first Refugee Artist HUB that will also be a platform for diverse Artists to meet and work on creative ideas in new ways and method. Both Refugees and Diverse Artist and also people who work with Refugees are more than welcome.

Here is the information:

The Refugee Artist HUB is a free creative and informal opportunity for refugee artists in Manchester to meet and exchange ideas. Led by Mahboobeh Rajabi, digital artist and Manchester International Festival’s Jerwood Creative Fellow 2017, the HUB marks the beginning of a new creative network for refugee artists in Manchester.

Participants in the HUB can also have one free ticket to see the following performance:
