Something new and exciting is coming to Bradford!
InterCommunity Talks are a set of free online conversations and cultural interventions presented by InterCultured Festival, and it is the first time this event is taking place online.
This event has 12 exciting online programmes that you can attend for free from the 23rd-30th of October.
The organisation BISAN fully supported the idea and inception of Intercultural and became a partnership with a range of volunteers and organisations who support marginalised communities, particularly those from sanctuary seeking backgrounds.
‘Even though they have changed the event to online due to coronavirus, it is beneficial because hosting the sessions online allows for even more people to attend and get involved with the community conversations.’
Launching the festival would be none other than BIASAN Women’s Hour, a session led in conversation with Kongosi Mussanzi and Jane Gregory to discuss women’s rights, issues and global conflicts which affect us all.
Other programmes that you can enjoy are Transnational Poetry by Samar Shahdad, the comedy troupe No Direction Home performing a stint on their Zoom tour and conversation with Bradford 2025, VieClerc’s ‘In Limbo’ and a panel discussion around how sport and exercise to help refugees.
Founder Mussarat Rahman shared the future goal by stating, “We are aiming to hold a small mini-festival every year, with a series of talks, events, and activities for and held by the local and international communities of Bradford.”
Mussarat and the team have many excellent plans to expand this new event and are looking for some potential sponsors to secure funding for the next festival.
To get the chance to be part of the festival, contact the founder, Miss Mussarat Rahman via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This festival will not just stop here; they want to go above and beyond to create a bigger platform for intercultural events.
‘The future is full of possibilities, and we aim to engage with as many opportunities as possible.’
