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.10 – Finding Hope with Laura Hassler

By Podcast

Our first episode of a new season of the ReSounding Podcast, and we kick 2022 off with a moving interview with Laura Hassler, the founder and director of Musicians Without Borders, and one of the co-founders of art27.

Laura is an award-winning peace activist who has worked with Musicians Without Borders for over 20 years to help heal the wounds of war through music education, sustainable school programs, and an approach informed by the power of art on the body. In this episode she tells about how she “accidentally” founded the charity, how she finds her hope, and a fascinating story involving the US President Eisenhower and bags of grain.

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?’

ReSounding Ep.8 – The Meaning of Wellbeing with Injonge Karangwa

By Podcast

What do we mean when we talk about health and wellbeing? Across countries and cultures these words may take on totally different meanings and connotations. In countries where healthcare is taken for granted, the term “healthy” may be totally different to those in countries where healthcare is less easy to access.

This month’s guest, Injonge Karangwa, is a Rwandan singer, songwriter, and the Chief Organizer of the Hamwe Festival – a festival dedicated to discussing health equity and the role of arts in culture in healthcare around the world. Through her work Injonge seeks to empower health workers using art in order to bring about shared wellbeing across the world.

You can attend this year’s Hamwe Festival in November by going to their website.
