Bedford Music in Detention
About

Contact Details

We offer dynamic song-writing exchange projects, working in collaboration with detainees at Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre to create music and lyrics that explore issues around multiculturalism, immigration and immigration detention. We believe that this process brings children into direct contact with some very difficult issues in an incredibly positive way, with the aim of improving cultural acceptance & understanding.

As an organisation, our primary concern is improving the wellbeing of the detainees in Yarl’s Wood, and this collaborative and expressive process has an immediate and lasting impact for the women and families we’re trying to help.
