Symposium Part 1
21 May 13.30–18.00
Symposium Part 1 – programmed by Umut Erel and Agnes Czajka – brings together a dynamic mix of Open University projects presenting a series of interdisciplinary conversations between the social sciences and the arts: focusing on ‘movement and identity through experiences of migration’; the ‘politics of citizenship’; ‘models of participation in the context of climate change’; ‘creative interventions into citizenship’ and ‘solidarity with refugees across a range of geographical and political landscapes’.
Symposium Part 2
23 May 12.00–17.00
Symposium Part 2 - programmed by Umut Erel and Agnes Czajka - brings together a rich range of interdisciplinary research projects and creative collaborations from The Open University: including themes about ‘movement and immobility’; ‘Catalan political prisoners and exiles’; ‘desire lines – a dialogue on movement, belonging and the law’; ‘tales of precarity’; ‘home on the move - the changing notions of ‘home’ through poetry, translation and film art’.
This event is part of Who Are We?, a cross-platform event designed and curated for Tate Exchange (Tate Modern) by Counterpoints Arts and The Open University, reflecting on identity, belonging, migration and citizenship. The programme is shaped by co-creation, co-production and exchange among artists, arts and culture organisations, audiences, activists and academics.
