This video is a part of Hear Me Out's recent ‘More Than A Label’ fundraising campaign. It was co-created by the charity with a group of people who have lived experience of being held in immigration detention centres and asylum hotels.
The campaign was led by Kwaku, Jonathan, Diana*, Fernando* and Téa. After receiving training in content creation and fundraising, they worked together to design and execute the campaign, with Hear Me Out’s support.
It was clear from the beginning of the project that the group had shared a desire to explore the theme of labels, and the prejudices that those labels carry.
*Names changed to protect the individual's identities.
Hear Me Out runs music-making workshops in immigration detention centres and asylum hotels to release the words, music and life stories of people held inside.
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
