“I think it’s good in this research that you’re doing that you are giving people a platform to express themselves as they wish to be seen or considered.” (Yazan, Syrian Voices Participant)
SYRIAN VOICES is a new community history and documentary film project seeing the Syrian crisis from the unique perspectives of refugees now settled in the UK.
The project fulfils the urgent need to witness the humanitarian catastrophe through individual stories of conflict, diaspora and perceptions of life in the UK. Syrians from diverse backgrounds and all walks of life candidly share their experiences. Using filmed testimonies, zoom recordings, home videos and photographs, Syrian Voices offers an insight into what it means to be a war refugee living in the UK today.
It is hoped the archive of over 50 interviews will become an institutional resource for researchers in the future.
