Case Study

The Journeys Gazette

The Journeys Gazette is a newspaper created especially for Journeys Festival International 2022 as part of the Liberty EU Programme.

Writer and Editor John Berkavitch weaves professional writers, leading poets and community stories together to create a powerful read exploring positivity, humour and healing. Working alongside local communities with experience of migration and resettlement, the newspaper aims to contradict the often negative views portrayed in the mainstream press surrounding asylum seekers and migrants and celebrates Leicester together as a city and as a new home.
