Let the music speak for their humanity
North London based artist Namugga was a participant in our Voices to the World project. Working with Generation Uncovered, Rising Tide and The Crib, we ran workshops for young people to create music to be sent into the UK's immigration detention centres. In her own words, Namugga describes the experience.
Sarah was a psychiatric patient at Langley Green Hospital when we held a community exchange in 2019 between patients and people in Brook House immigration detention centre.

I was in immigration detention for seven months. It's a different world, everything is about power. It's so detrimental and killing so many people.
Detention centres are mental destruction. They’re similar to prison, but it’s worse than prison. In a detention centre, you don't know when you’re coming out.
In detention, you don’t know how long you’re going to be there. You just count the days up. There are people treating you as though you’re not a human being.
