Beyond Borders – Panel Discussion – ‘What roles can the arts play in responding to the border crisis and the issues surrounding it?’

16th April 2016 @ 17:00 - 18:30

The GAP Arts Project will be chairing a panel discussion exploring questions such as how can arts be used to shift discourses and perspectives on the border crisis; what responsibility do artists have when addressing these issues within their work; and how can artistic expression be used by refugees, asylum seekers and others to share their experiences of migration and borders?

Panelist include Alicja Kaczmarek (Centrala), Rachael Cox (Platforma and Celebrating Sanctuary), Carol Meredith (art class facilitator at St Chad’s Sanctuary), Aisling Marks (writer and researcher) and Dr Mohsen Keiany (artist and visiting lecturer at Birmingham City University).
