Refugee Week is the time of the year to show solidarity and appreciation to those who fled their homes and came to our shores bringing a lot to share with us. During Refugee Week there are hundreds of events happening across the country to acknowledge the contributions and lives of refugees in the UK.
This Refugee Week we have some brilliant events lined up to celebrate the amazing music created by our refugee groups and survivors of armed conflict.
HARMONISE @ LONDON AND MANCHESTER
Even after escaping conflict or persecution to come to the UK, many refugee and asylum seeker children still feel isolated and misunderstood.
This Refugee Week, we’ll be creating chaos and joy with children from schools across Manchester, Sheffield and London. Harmonise brings together musicians from Syria, Congo, Ethiopia, Romania, Iran, Bosnia-Hercegovina who will be teaching kids as well as getting ready to create original music.
LONDON – 1pm, 21 June @ Southbank Centre – Free entry! More information and tickets here. Performance suitable for schools, contact email@example.com
MANCHESTER – 1pm, 24 June @ Bridgewater Hall – Free Entry! More information and tickets here.
CONFLICT & COMPASSION @ GORTON MONASTERY, 23 JUNE – 3PM
Musicians from Stone Flowers will be accompanied by Manchester Camerata for a unique and unmissable performance at Gorton Monastery on 23rd June. The performance is part of our Conflict & Compassion programme which explores the conflict of World War I from untold and overlooked perspectives outside of Europe.
We’ll be blending music from WWI-era composers and brand new music created by Stone Flowers and Manchester Camerata. Our themes have been interwoven into a compelling immersive performance, to inspire audiences for a better, more peaceful future for us all.
