BRIDGE + TUNNEL VOICES (a registered charity)

Bridge + Tunnel Voices is an innovative media charity based in the North East of England. Founded in 2005, B+T Voices produces a range of socially engaged and issue-based projects in collaboration with culturally diverse communities. We work extensively with refugee, asylum seeker and migrant communities - largely from the Middle East.

Advocacy, education and nurturing creativity is at the heart of our work.
