Migration Matters Festival 2024

14 Jun 2024 - 22 Jun 2024
Sheffield, United Kingdom

Migration Matters Festival 2024 will be the 9th edition of the festival.

Sheffield has always been the Steel City, the place of Hendo’s, hills, Pulp, chip butties, industry, grit, soul and strength.

But more significantly, the city has a proud record of welcoming new people from the far reaches of the world. It’s a city which has opened its doors, and most importantly become a place of sanctuary for those people most in need. It’s this spirit that saw Sheffield become established as the first City of Sanctuary.

Every third week in June during what is known nationally as Refugee Week, Migration Matters Festival ‘Britain’s largest festival about Sanctuary and refugees in the country’ (The New Internationalist, 2017) returns to Sheffield in a festival that creates a platform to champion the voices of people who are so often muted, pigeon-holed into labels and rarely genuinely offered a chance to shape the cultural and artistic landscape of the cities they live in.
