Refugee Arts (LARA)

The Lorraine Ayensu Refugee Arts (LARA) works to support refugee and asylum seeking musicians. We work closely with members of BRR, other refugees and asylums seekers, and local musicians in projects . Our main objectives are:

  • To create showcase performances by asylum seekers and refugees living in Bristol, in the performing arts.
  • To support development of arts amongst asylum seekers and refugees living in Bristol in the fields of performing arts and especially music.
  • To advocate for refugee issues through performing arts.
  • To connect asylum seekers and refugees to the wider community through performing arts.

Our recent projects have included collaborations with the Bristol Reggae Orchestra, St George’s Bristol, Tribe of Doris and Platforma. For more information about musicians that LARA have worked with, or how to get involved, please contact Danny .
