Digital Culture Hub: Our Voices, Our Stories 1

In these moving testimonials, we invite you to listen to the voices of four refugees and asylum seekers who we are privileged to have as part of our Comfrey family, as they share their journey from being forced to flee their home countries to seeking safety and asylum in the UK.   

From four different perspectives, these powerful stories reflect some of the perilous and desperate situations that they found themselves in, and the challenges they faced in order to start a new life here in the North East. 

Recorded by Star and Shadow Cinema during lockdown, following beautiful and sensitive storytelling workshops with SailCreative, these stories give voice to the courage, resilience and honesty of Eric, Yade, James and Yusuf.
