The Helen Bamber Foundation is a collective of human rights specialists who work together with survivors of genocide, torture, trafficking and rape (from any part of the world) who seek safety and refuge, providing them with practical support and treatment to deal with their pasts and build new futures.
Woven Gold music group, includes people from Burma, Georgia, Iran, Kurdistan, Pakistan & many African countries as well as professional UK musicians who give their time. What inspires musicians and refugees from around the world to come together? One Kurdish musician who has been with Woven Gold since its inception says ‘I believe that music is the best way to live without borders, in peace, as a world family. Woven Gold has shown us that though they may have different colours and notes, the sounds are universal.’
Woven Gold’s public performances are increasingly in demand. They represent the work of Helen Bamber and the Foundation and tell the world about different cultures and music, expressing themselves freely without fear of repression. They have performed at the Eden Project in Cornwall, St. Martin in the Fields, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, at festivals including Celebrating Sanctuary on the South Bank and the City of London Festival.
