Mayflower 400 Voyages of the Heart

Voyages of the Heart will be led by renowned composer, producer, cellist and kora virtuoso Tunde Jegede; commissioned by Turner Sims and Southampton City Council as part of the Mayflower 400 programme.

This new ensemble music project is inspired by the stories of Southampton’s migrant communities, collected through the City Archive and a new National Lottery Heritage Fund-supported oral history project. Book your tickets here.

A Mile In My Shoes Podcast

A Mile In My Shoes

A Mile in My Shoes, is an immersive project created by the Empathy Museum which visited Southampton earlier in the year in which participants were invited to put their feet in someone elses shoes and listen to the stories of those who owned them. 

You can now listen to the stories from Southampton, and other from around the world, who share moments of grief, loss, love and joy on the Empathy Museums Podcast here. 

This project formed part of Southampton's Mayflower 400 anniversary programme.

Call & Create with The Point

Call create image

The Point and Age Concern are pioneering a new project to inspire creativity and happiness for Eastleigh residents who are alone at home. Call and Create will connect you with one professional performance artist and one person chosen by you – maybe a friend or family member. The three of you will share weekly conversations about positive topics, and after five weeks our artists will have created something to share especially for you – a song, poem, story or piece of music.

This is a phone call based programme and the start date will be 8th February 2021. Calls would take place every week for five weeks on either Tuesdays or Thursdays at either 11am or 2.30pm.

No prior creative experience is required and there is no cost to be involved.

If you would like to register to take part please call the team on 023 8068 8840.
