Since it was launched in 2005, Exodus Live has nurtured a generation of refugee heritage musicians to:
- Develop and share their music with new audiences
- Make new links with musicians from diverse heritages resulting in a range of eclectic and exciting musical collaborations
- Access a wide range of mainstream cultural opportunities including the Manchester International Festival and Manchester Jazz Festival
- Infuse the region’s already unique musical mix with the vitality of new cultures
