Sit with Us takes place at Convention House during Refugee Week (14 - 21 June) and is an interactive art installation where women from different migration backgrounds invite you to sit, make yourself comfortable and listen.

Sit with Us features printed textiles, filmed monologues and invitations to take yourself on guided ‘soundwalks’ around the local area.

Sit with Us has been co-created by the Mafwa women’s Friday group, Kuluhenna Drama, who have worked with artists to create the set design and performances. Mafwa’s associate artist group have worked with Sable Radio to design the soundscapes of the installation, as well as creating soundwalks (Walk with Us), which use the Convention House site as their starting point.

Social distancing guidelines will be in place and tickets must be booked in advance.

An online version on the installation will be available on from 14.5.21.

Sit with Us was created with support from Arts Council England and Leeds Inspired.
