Over the past year over 5,000 young people have been involved in school workshops and special assemblies, and the compositions created reflect on what happens when individuals, families and communities are driven out of their homes, because of war or climate catastrophe, persecution or threat of genocide.
They also consider the continuing difficulties survivors and refugees face as they try to build new homes and recover from the trauma of their experiences.
The Corn Exchange is hosting the annual concert – titled Voices of Hope and Compassion – in support of refugees on Sunday 30 June, at the end of the UK-wide Refugee Week (17 to 23 June 2024). 
The concert is organised by Helen Weinstein, and hosted by Michael Rosen, alongside choirs, poets, musicians, drama and dance groups who have been involved in the education and arts programme.
