Films from our partners for the Horizons Festival 2021.

We Cannot Walk Alone and we're delighted to present four films to wrap up 2021's Horizons Festival.

Young people from Afrocats respond to 2021’s Horizons Festival, the arts festival celebrating Refugee Week developed and delivered in partnership with HOME, theme #WeCannotWalkAlone through creative movement and poetry created during lockdown.
