VOICES features a tapestry with prints of images of objects which people brought from their countries of origin and their oral histories (2017). Touring the artwork around Bedfordshire schools has involved children in the work and learning about the journeys of displacement highlighted by the objects. With the question: "What if you had to leave home without time to collect your favourite belongings?" School pupils have created objects out of wire with strong empathy on the feelings, emotions and survival experienced by a people or class cut off from its own past.
The programme of the event June 17th includes drama, music, visual arts, film projections.
