About the Anthems

We had not imagined the breadth of the material and memories that would land in our inbox when we commissioned nine writers, artists, and supporters of SADAA, to reflect on their lives, their influences, their thinking, and their work, in the UK over 25 years.

As well as prose, we have an original painting, poetry, and a play. Each story of arrival is different – distinct – as are the living experiences and artistic leanings and learnings.   We hope you will enjoy the pieces as much as we have.
