Syrian Voices is a participatory community history project which records the testimonies of Syrian refugees now re-settled across the UK. This project explores what it means to be a refugee in the UK today, as well as how new transnational identities are constructed.
A core aim of the Syrian Voices project is to build networks of support and skill-sharing between participants, NGOs, voluntary organisations and members of the wider community. We invite new Syrian participants from all backgrounds and walks of life.
We hope to create a lasting institutional archive of around 50 recorded interviews for future historians and researchers using filmed testimonies, zoom recordings and photos. We will also hold termly seminars and events with our collaborators. A series
of short documentary films illustrating individual stories will be posted on our TORCH website going forward. Get in touch with us there if you’d like to find out more and join our project!
