Playing tracks by
David Bowie, Kimya Dawson and Fever Ray.
Artists Yara + Davina bring Arrivals + Departures to the Brighton Festival in May 2021. It's a series of events and public art to explore birth, death and the journey in between.
There's an arrivals & departures board in Pavilion Gardens from 30th April - 8th May where you can contribute a name of someone who has been born or died, as well as online discussions around birth, death and grief.
This radio show is an audio companion piece to that, where Yara + Davina put a call out for local people to tell them about the song they'd like played at their funeral.
