Looking back at Sanctuary Radio

In the summer of 2016, After18 ran a project in which groups of young people programmed and presented their own pop-up internet radio station, Sanctuary Radio.

It was an opportunity for refugees living in Leicester to share diverse arts, music, culture and spoken-word from across the globe, reflecting the international origins of those taking part.

The station ran from August to September. Some of the highlights have been archived online and we have added a link to one of the programmes below.

Sanctuary Radio was produced in collaboration with TwoStory and The Journeys Festival (an ArtReach event) and supported by funding from Arts Council England.
