Event Details

Plymouth is home to refugees, asylum seekers and migrant workers from around the globe. Their presence mirrors Plymouth’s historical engagement with the wider world in its role as trading post, naval base, and a place from which seafarers, pilgrims and pioneers have set out on epic journeys.

We have been working with individuals from various migrant communities, exploring the experience of displacement through song. We asked individuals to sing songs that have a particular significance to them and recorded each song without musical accompaniment. We have created sound installations that can be heard in the vicinity of Frankfort Gate in Plymouth during Plymouths Art Weekender. 

The work expresses unique perspectives of the city and considers how memories of lives lived elsewhere are overlaid and interwoven into the experience of place, and how public spaces can be transformed albeit transiently to reflect the experience of migrant people who live and work in Plymouth.

Exhibition runs 22/23/24 September
