Jaibli Salaam - Brighton�s Syrian community

JAIBLI SALAAM, an Arabic welcome salutation, explores ideas of home, identity, food and music from Brighton's migrant communities.

The first episode will be broadcast on Christmas Day and is the story of The School Bus Project, an example of the extraordinary outpouring of generosity from the city towards the refugees. Kate McAllister, founder of the project takes us aboard her yellow double decker bus, the result of a successful crowdfunding initiative, which she is converting into a pop up classroom to take to the Jungle camp in Calais.

The following episodes take us into the homes of Brighton’s Syrian community. In each episode the presenter Gilly Smith cooks and chats about food, music and memories from the old country, but the stories say so much more about the humanity and warmth of the Syrian people.

The series is supported by the Digital Catapult Centre Brighton which is a partnership between Brighton’s digital community, Wired Sussex and The University of Brighton. 

To hear JAIBLI SALAAM, tune into RadioReverb 97.2 FM on Christmas Day between 5pm - 6pm, repeated again 10pm - 11pm and on Boxing Day between 9am - 10am with the remaining 5 shows scheduled across January 2016.
