Stories of Sanctuary is a community songwriting project, with an emotive and poignant show of original songs written and performed by those seeking sanctuary in County Durham. Drawing on Durham’s rich history of offering sanctuary – from the arrival of an exile monastic community seeking sanctuary from the Vikings to modern stories of fleeing civil war in Syria – Stories of Sanctuary warmly invites you into the project that inspired infectious friendships as well as deeply beautiful songs. Stories of Sanctuary is the Sanctuary Seekers Choir, featuring the National Syrian Orchestra’s Raghad Haddad along with the project’s curator and singer-songwriter Sam Slatcher.
