Two Rivers presents the Rumman Festival: Exploring the Iraqi Diaspora

This September Two Rivers present the Rumman Festival – the first installment of what will hopefully become an annual event. The Rumman Festival aims to present a new narrative on Iraqi culture.

Over the course of two days, we’ll be hosting films, live music, workshops and talks which will explore how Iraqis living in the diaspora are contributing to the regeneration of their homeland and how many still have hopes of being able to return one day. The festival will also shine a light on creatives inside Iraq who are working to shape a post conflict identity. This year’s festival coincides with Eid celebrations so Two Rivers will also be hosting a delicious, traditional Iraqi Eid brunch at The Project Café.
