Angels at Timber Festival

Angels celebrates the courage and optimism of displaced people: from childhood lullabies remembered from another country, to the things that make them happy in their new homes. Refugee and asylum seeker participants from across the UK have created a series of visual and audio portraits reminding us all how we can cope with difficult situations and find strength in the things that comfort us.

Angels is a series of video portraits projected around the site, talking to us, by surprise, in the most unexpected places. Each portrait was created between March and May of 2019 and has begun touring in the Journeys International Festival as well as three Cities of Sanctuary
