Rebuilding Lives

On Monday 12 July at 12.30pm we invited listeners to tune in to Skimstone Radio to hear our Artistic Director Claire Webster Saaremets and campaigner, architect and Newcastle University lecturer Smajo Beso for Rebuilding Lives a special event to mark Bosnia Memorial Week 2021. The event included a chance to hear stories about survivors who have shown inspirational strength and determination to rebuild their lives as well as specially created songs including Emina written as a tribute to Smajo’s Auntie who was killed in the war.

 

Bosnia Memorial Week 2021 honours the two million people displaced during the genocide and ethnic cleansing in Bosnia in the 1990s, leaving them to seek refuge all over the world.
