The Yorkshire Integration Festival 2023 took place on Saturday 30 September 2023 in Peace Gardens and Winter Garden in Sheffield.

This free, family-friendly event was a celebration of the positive impact made by migrants and refugees in Yorkshire and Humber, showcasing the diverse range of cultures and customs that make our region a special place to live.

As well as being open to the general public, the Festival was a place of welcome for those seeking sanctuary. Many of our audience were from our refugee communities. In order to make the festival as accessible as possible, Migration Yorkshire provided free return coach travel and lunch on the day to enable refugees and asylum seekers from right across the Yorkshire and Humber region to attend.

A river runs between our streets - the Yorkshire Integration Film Festival 2023

In December 2023, we partnered with Pavilion and Hyde Park Picture House to bring you the Yorkshire Integration Film Festival 2023.

Across five decades and four continents, A River Runs Between Our Streets was a weekend of screenings bringing together work by 22 international artists, filmmakers and collectives in a dialogue of the complexities, realities and poetics of migration.
