How to find Afflecks


Afflecks is proud to be supporting and playing a part in Manchesters Journeys Festival.

Journeys Festival will be 12 days of extraordinary events celebrating the artistic talent and incredible stories of exceptional refugee artists – creating a positive interface with the community, through great art and culture.

Afflecks will be part of the ‘Look Up’ exhibition, a high impact, large scale outdoor visual arts exhibition with images on the exteriors of some iconic Manchester buildings across the cityscape.

Originally from Iraq, Jamal Jamel was selected from an open-call of Manchester based visual artists from the refugee and asylum seeker community. Jamal is currently studying photography at the University of Salford.
For this exciting commission Jamal worked closely with refugees and asylum seekers to create powerful self portraits, the large scale photographs will be displayed on various Manchester buildings at a level where passers by will look up to view the images.

The exhibition runs from 1st to the 12th October.
