April – August 2023

We were approached by the New Vic Theatre team to be the hosts of an amazing play called My Thousand Year Old Land to mark the Remembering Srebrenica anniversary. To accompany this, 6 million+ participants designed and created a beautiful mosaic made out of flowers, with the Srebrenica flower at its centre, surrounded by flowers from the many different cultures represented in our group. A new song was co-written with Bosnian musician Sanja Cin. Ukrainian singer Natalia Mirkun and local musician Andy Burton worked with the group to practice the song. The song and the mosaic, together with clay tiles made by everyone, were shared with the audience, after the performance of the play.

Many thanks to Kirklees Council and the Brelms Trust for making this very special process possible.
