Description

Join us on a family friendly Art Walk around this year's Look Up artworks in Portsmouth. Hosted by each Look Up artist and Young Producer Jennifer Tipton, each art walk will give you an opporunity to meet one of the artists involved in the project, and hear about their process.

Journeys Festival International Portsmouth proudly presents a unique collaboration between local artists Majid Dhana and Natalia Michalska for this year's Look Up exhibition. Together the artists photographed Portsmouth’s refugee and asylum seeker community, working with participants to illustrate portraits that are visually striking and provide an important message to the wider public. Presented in large scale artworks across the city, United Tribe, gives visibility to Portsmouth’s refugee community.
