This weekend will see our team back in Calais refugee camp -the ‘Jungle’, for the KITE FESTIVAL, our musicians and percussionists working alongside arial acrobatics with Help4 Refugee Children in Calais organisation. This will be leading up to week long residencies in the camp where we will be working in a local school and youth centre providing creative music making and performance activities for children and young people, leading up to an event in the ‘White Mountain’ venue.

This month, participants to our mental health programme Raw Sounds have been collaborating on a photography project with Photofusion.

Building a pop-up photo-booth in the park next door to Raw Material, participants have learnt skills in photography – using SLR cameras, screens and light reflectors to create a unique image. For the next two weeks, we will be heading to Photofusion’s high tech studio to edit these images, working with collage techniques to turn our photos into album covers for music produced during Raw Sounds sessions.

Watch this space for the results!
