In 2017 Norwich hosted a record 22 events, with a number of new venues and organisations joining in to celebrate Norwich’s diversity.
Norfolk’s long history of welcoming refugees was revealed in the New Routes’ walking tour of Norwich and by the team at Strangers’ Hall. The arts of those forced into exile were in the spotlight at the Norwich Arts Centre Eritrea, a country at a crossroads exhibition and at a special screening of the critically-acclaimed Persopolis at Cinema City, alongside heart-warming local shorts. To close the week, stirring and inspiring personal stories on the theme of leaving home were shared at a special edition of True Stories Live at the Norwich Arts Centre.
