MRSN Manchester Refugee Cultural Festival, poster, 1998. This poster shows the 8 original communities which fed into and formed MRSN back when it started in 1996. Its vibrant yellow colour is certainly eye-catching and reminiscent of the joyful celebratory feel of the festivals.
Were you a member of one of the 8 original communities? Were you at the festival? Do you remember the early days of MRSN? If so we’d love to hear from you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
