Accept and Close

The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

For this special occasion Stone Flowers invite the audience to participate in an interactive online music event. In this session, Stone Flowers' members and music facilitators will lead musical activities and perform and sing together the latest composition written in English and Swahili. Stone Flowers is a music collective of Music Action International that supports traumatised refugee and asylum seeker torture survivors living in the UK through regular therapeutic music sessions. As sessions develop, survivors begin to write original songs with messages of hope, peace and resilience. Survivors move beyond trauma to rediscover feelings of motivation and self-esteem.

Since 2011 Stone Flowers has worked with over 200 torture survivors, from across the world, expressing themselves through the languages, traditions and cultures of their home countries as well as in English, and recorded two studio albums available to buy or download.

Register in advance – this event includes interactive elements, which will only be available to a limited number of those attending via Zoom.

Or watch without interaction below during/after the live stream.

Free – donations welcome.
