"IBT invites us into other people’s worlds – and in doing so switches on new lights within our own." The Guardian

WE ARE WARRIORS is a sound and light installation in the incredible surroundings of Bristol’s Redcliffe Caves, a human-made network of caverns and catacombs that run underneath the city. Acting like a beacon calling people in, We Are Warriors contains thousands of tiny flickering lights and the voices of 130 women and girls from Bristol aged 8-80.

“A reclamation of a city's darkest spaces, for all those whose voice has ever been silenced.”

As you enter, add your light to the growing constellation, in tribute to anyone who has ever felt their voice or presence muffled or suppressed.

The soundscape was developed in workshops with diverse women from our city run by Breathing Fire Black Women's Playback Theatre Company, produced and created by In Between Time, commissioned by Bristol Women’s Voice.

People who participated were from: Bristol and Avon Chinese Women’s Group, Bristol Drugs Project, Montpelier High School, Eastwood Park Women’s Prison, Gloucester Road Women’s Institute, Integrate UK, Redmaid’s Junior School and the Wellbeing Group at Wellspring Healthy Living.
