We’re excited to announce that Crisis Choirs and Stone Flowers will be performing together as part of our brand new Resilience, Recovery and Happiness collaboration with health and science organisation Bassajamba and Manchester University’s Division of Psychology and Mental Health.

Join us on 6th April at Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester for a unique evening of uplifting and moving music. People affected by war and torture  will use music to teach us about courage and resilience, and how to find the strength to carry on after losing everything.

We work with refugees through partners Cornerstone {Hulme], Rainbow Haven [Gorton] and BRASS [Bolton]. Most people coming to Crisis Choirs have never performed or written music before. Our music facilitators help people explore their own creativity. Participants write their own lyrics and share ideas which are then shaped into songs.

Members of Stone Flowers have fled war, torture and armed conflict across the world including Iran, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Syria, Afghanistan, Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Drawing on their different languages, traditions and cultures makes performances powerful and unique.

Crisis Choirs supports refugees and asylum seekers in crisis who go to drop-in centres for support. Many have spent years living in refugee camps and many face challenges living in a new and often hostile community.

This is an event not to be missed!
