“Voices of The Movement” project grew from the increasing need to address the migrant refugee crisis that has taken over the globe by storm. There are over 60 million refugees in the world, 60 million people torn from their homes and their families, just looking to survive and start again.
From January to May 2017 we worked with a group of refugees, asylum seekers, migrants and a group of talented artists to create a 'movement' that challenged the stigma associated with people of displacement. We brought to life inspirational stories through original music, poetry and a theatrical show in collaboration with Park Theatre.
Our project paired one talented artist with one refugee/migrant and they worked closely and sensitively together to transform their narrated life stories into powerful poems and music. The refugees and migrants in our project decided how they wanted their stories to be told and delivered.
With our project we have successfully shed light on the negative misconceptions and stigmas associated with refugees and migrants in the mainstream media. Our project and our theatrical show was a message, one of extraordinary human resilience and hope that one can always rebuild from the rubble. --- www.youpress.org.uk
