Refugee Week 2020 at CAN.

Due to the challenges of COVID lockdown in 2020, CAN is delivering its work for Refugee Week online.

3 June 2020

For Refugee Week 2020, CAN has created a programme of workshops, performances, film and discussion, created in association with amazing international artists from Manchester’s creative community, as part of our acclaimed and pioneering Exodus programme. And we’re doing it online.

Unfortunately, the Horizons Festival, co-produced by CAN and HOME, can’t take place this year due to the restrictions presented by lockdown.  However, the team have been determined to develop a programme of the quality that our artists and audiences have come to expect from our exciting annual celebration of Refugee Week.  And we hope you agree.

“This year’s creative celebrations of Refugee Week have moved online. We’re delighted to share a digital programme of workshops, performances, film and discussion, created in association with the city’s creative community.”

Katherine Rogers, Exodus Creative Producer

Launching on Sat 13 June #EveryoneCAN celebrates Manchester’s status as the most linguistically diverse city in Western Europe, with a series of FREE digital creative workshops and performances for families.

From Sun 14 June #BeyondBorders is a FREE digital programme of performances and film created by international artists during lockdown.

Both programmes will be available online throughout Refugee Week.

Join us on Instagram to celebrate #RefugeeWeek2020 and imagine a world #BeyondBorders.
