Part of the WhoAreWe? project
Join us for an afternoon of collective imagining at the TATE Modern, Friday 25 May, 12:00-18:00

How does the creation of a hostile environment towards immigrants challenge the ways we create belonging, build communities and form solidarity? This symposium invites activists, practitioners, artists and academics to address the current hostile environment towards immigrants within and beyond the UK and Europe.

What does it mean to be 'hostile' towards migrant groups, and what are the human impacts of such agendas? While such policies can create a sense of 'un-belonging', this symposium seeks to build solidarity across and between the boundaries of migration.

Panels include: Liberty; Migrant Artists Mutual Aid; Migration and Asylum Justice Forum; Music in Detention; Safety 4 Sisters

Confirmed speakers: Cihan Arikan; Monish Bhatia; Abi Brunswick; Victoria Canning; Nira Yuval Davis; Umut Erel; Rachel Humphries; Gabi Kent; Marina Vilhelmsson

Film screening (12:15): Lost in Lebanon (Scott Sisters, 2017) (clips & discussion)

Can we collectively imagine a different future, and what will it take to achieve it?
