10 venues, 1500 audience members!

The Stories of Sanctuary project took 15 participants to perform original songs in venues across the UK including Sheffield's Migration Matters Festival, Refugee Week in Hull and Leicester Cathedral for Journeys Festival International. Raghad Haddad, viola player from the National Syrian Orchestra, performed with the project, along with singer-songwriter Sam Slatcher.

“The young adults from Stories of Sanctuary who performed at the
Festival moved me to tears, not because their songs sought my pity
but because their lyrics were full of resilient courage and tender hope” (Rachel Parkinson, Festival organiser)
