The Resonators are interviewed by ITV

Members of The Resonators are interviewed by ITV about their work for Refugee Week. Broadcast on ITV out 20th June 2023.

Sanctuary of Sound

Sanctuary of Sound took place in the atmospheric Arches at Newcastle University, where you could experience the collaborative sound installation created by The Resonators - a collective of people with lived refugee experience. The sound piece, which explores urban and natural soundscapes of Newcastle, was created with the West End Refugee Service, artist Martin Heslop and our Artistic Director Claire Webster Saaremets. Participants have been listening, capturing field recordings and writing to collectively compose this immersive piece.

Watch The Resonators on ITV as they listen to their sound piece and Claire from Skimstone Arts talks to ITV about what we can learn from, and about the lives, skills and commitment of those living with refugee experience in North East.

“Someone told me they heard my recorded voices in The Arches.  Thank You. Thank You so much.. for a wonderful project and an outstanding team. “

“ Thank you Martin and Claire for your creative and emotional support.” Member of The Resonators.
