The Silent University ON12

Offering short courses on a range of topics including understanding health, Arabic calligraphy, and business skills, the Silent University is a knowledge and skill-sharing platform initiated by artist Ahmet Ögüt in collaboration with asylum seekers and refugees in London. Join Silent University lecturers for a series of courses based on expertise and knowledge drawn from a wide international context. Each evening of courses will also include a panel discussion and Q&A with Silent University Faculty and visiting scholars, unpicking a range of issues relevant to understanding contemporary forms of migration, including silence, power, access to knowledge and citizenship.

The Silent University is a project initiated by Ahmet Ögüt during his residency with Tate Learning and Community and Regeneration Partnerships in collaboration with the Delfina Foundation.
