Many Hands One Heart is a support and wellbeing project for people from the LGBTQ+ community who are seeking asylum in Liverpool. The group have been working with London-based artist Larry Achiampong. We’ve collaborated with Larry before as part of our Take Over 2018 festival, where we shared Sunday’s Best, Larry’s contemplative film on faith and colonial histories.

We are releasing Season One through weekly postings here on the Heart of Glass website and via our social media. This is the first season of podcasts in The Mic Drop series, Many Hands One Heart have a lot more to say so we'll be developing more in the next phase of the project, so keep listening and we'd love to hear your feedback.
