Description: The One Journey Festival is a grassroots coalition built to create a visible platform to celebrate refugee talents and contributions and change the narrative about refugees. Our inaugural event will take place on Saturday June 2, 2018 on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral and is expected to draw 3,000+ participants. The One Journey Festival aims to connect cultures through food, fashion, music and dance as we celebrate refugee talents and stories, and empower participants to take actions to stand in solidarity with our global displaced brothers and sisters. Among the day’s highlights, Chef Jose Andres and a refugee chef will collaborate on a food show. Actor, model, and UN spokesperson Ger Duany will recount his story as one of the “lost boys” of Sudan. The celebrated Pihcintu Multicultural Children’s Chorus and the Leftists will debut songs written especially for the Festival. Refugee and immigrant music and dance groups will perform. Kid’s Corner features henna, make-a-kite, calligraphy lessons taught by refugee families and more. The “global marketplace” offers wares and creations from the original home countries of refugees. The festival also features virtual reality films and participants can live chat with refugees living in Iraq, Rwanda and Mexico via Shared Studios’ immersive video technology. Participants will meet refugees and their families from around the world and learn about global and local ways to get involved.
