ReSounding Ep.17 – Painting Home with Jason and Salam Noah

By Podcast

The Human Hive is an international organisation shifting the paradigm of development work. The Human Hive are in the process of training a mass collective of educators, facilitators, front-line workers, and students who are equipped with a better way of working. A way of working with the environment, rather than through it.

In this episode co-founder Darren Abrahams draws on his expertise as a musician and a body trauma therapist to discuss how practitioners can create safe spaces, and work “with” and not “for” participants. Whilst the Human Hive is built on a foundation of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, Darren argues that these worthwhile standards do not go far enough, and instead organisations need to aim for “regeneration” rather than settling for “sustainability”.

ReSounding Ep.11 – Reclaiming Creativity with Alaa Abdulfatah

By Podcast

In the 1960’s the town of Amude on the Northern border of Syria was a haven of creativity and expression. However a tragic fire in one of the town’s cinemas left a deep scar within the community that has not been healed for over 60 years.

That is until 2021, when Alaa Abdulfatah and her husband Gernas Haj Shekhmous decided to return to their hometown after years of living in Europe, to build the first new cinema in the town since the 60’s, and bring creativity back to Amude. Now they are creating a safe and creative space to start washing away the dust of decades of conflict.

This episode includes clips of Gernas Haj Shekhmous playing the daf in the town of Amude, and a performance by the Kulturvan Band.

You can find out more about Alaa’s amazing intiative at kulturvan.org and if you want to make a contribution to the intiative or donate instruments to their music drive, get in touch with Kulturvan, art27, or Musicians Without Borders

ReSounding Ep.9 – Rehumanizing with Rikko Voorberg and Rouddy Kimpioka

By Podcast

Walk of Shame is an organisation that has one mission: to rehumanize the way Europeans engage with the topics of migration and refugee status. By acknowledging the collective feelings of shame at having not done enough as a global society to help those in need, Walk of Shame hope to create greater communication through empathy and vulnerable understanding.

Rikko Voorberg and Rouddy Kimpioka join us this week to discuss the important difference between helping and understanding, and ask the question ‘when should we intervene, and when is it enough just to be there for someone?’
