Swansea City Opera

Swansea City Opera has been very fortunate to receive a grant from the Cultural Heritage fund of the British Council, the first Welsh company ever to do so! It is to work in Lebanon with three organisations to capture and record the intangible heritage of the occupants of two refugee camps, Shatila in Beirut and Rashedieh camp in the south of Lebanon. Our partners are SHIELD an NGO that works with refugees in the south, Dreams of a Refugee, an NGO that works with refugees in Shatila, and The American University of Beirut which will host the website and records of the heritage.
