Music Action International and Stone Flowers present a special screening of the award-winning film Stone Flowers – songs of hope and defiance.


The new documentary by James Sandy follows Stone Flowers – a collective of refugee torture survivors based in North West England – on their journey from starting a new life in the UK to becoming recording artists. Join us to celebrate Stone Flowers and explore how the collective creates powerful music to heal trauma, bring communities together and speak out about human rights abuses.

The film will be followed by a stimulating discussion with members of Stone Flowers, filmmaker James Sandy and a very special guest plus the opportunity to network afterwards, with delicious refreshments.

Stone Flowers are a music collective who have survived war, torture and persecution around the world. The programme is facilitated by Music Action International – a multi-award-winning charity creating life-changing music programmes with survivors. Find out more at:
