In Her Shoes was funded by Birmingham City Council to work with Syrian women
and girls, newly arrived in Birmingham. Meeting with over 25 Syrian women and
many of their children we wrote together, songs which explore the impact of
lockdown, missing family members, and what it means to be a woman. Women
shared their Syrian culture with us, taught us some Dabke dance moves and shared their wonderful food.
We are so pleased to be able to share the wonderful songs that have been created throughout this project. Take a look at our song book, just click on the image to open!
You can also take a listen to a couple of them by following these links below!
We were so thrilled to see this lovely blog by Rachel Gillies about our work together just before the lockdown on our project 'What Community Means To Me'
Thank you so much, Rachel!
