Refugee week is fast approaching and BedMID is gearing up to launch two new pieces of work.
Johanne Hudson Lett has been developing the music from the ‘Countrywide CD’ released during Refugee Week 2017, alongside making new songs with participants from Friends of Refugees, Bedfordshire.
Roshi Nasehi has been working with refugee family participants from Bedford’s Kings Arms Project on an innovative adventure exploring time-stretched audio landscapes.
To hear the what we’ve been up to come along to Refugee Week at The Higgins, Bedford on June 17th.
