A message from Women For Refugee Women:
“Hear her singing
The women we work with at Women for Refugee Women have been through so much. Many of them have survived sexual violence and torture, and have undertaken arduous journeys in search of safety. But their courage inspires us every day.
Now you too can be inspired by their strength and creativity.
If you are anywhere near the Southbank Centre in London up until 2 July, do drop into the Royal Festival Hall and check out the beautiful Hear Her Singing installation.
Created by artist Charwei Tsai with members of our drama group, the installation shows refugee women singing their own songs and speaking their own poetry, alongside the voices of women who are locked up in Yarl’s Wood detention centre.
You can catch the installation at six places around the Royal Festival Hall, including the Clore Ballroom, the Ticket Office and the Poetry Library, from now until 2 July.
And tomorrow Saturday at 1pm at the Royal Festival Hall there will be a Big Sing, with lots of the refugee women we work with taking part. Come and sing with us!
If you see the installations, please let us know what you think by email or Twitter #HearHerSinging @4refugeewomen”
