For Remembrance Day 2018, Music Action International joined with Manchester Camerata Orchestra for the start of a meaningful collaboration, “Conflict & Compassion”, exploring war then and war today.

Musicians from refugee collective Stone Flowers have experienced war and torture. They transform experiences of the horrors of war into beautiful music.

We all shared stories of World War I in Iran, India, Sri Lanka, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic and Britain. We reflected on how this war led to a century of conflict that has shaped the modern world.

Our themes will be interwoven into a compelling and moving performance for Refugee Week, to inspire audiences for a better, more peaceful future for us all. The performance will include newly written music, visuals and live discussions

We would love you to join the conversation. Sign up for news here
