Transnational lived citizenship through creative production (Manchester, June 2022)

We've been thrilled to be part of a research and networking event, bringing together academics, artists and activists engaged with artistic expressions and creative production of migrant/refugees. 'Transnational lived citizenship through creative production' was organised by Prof.Tanja Müller, Dr Alison Jeffers and Ambrose Musiyiwa at the University of Manchester.

The workshop built on the concept of transnational lived citizenship that has emerged over the last decade as a key tool to analyse claim making by mobile populations through everyday practices in the geographical locations where they reside; it also built on experiences with community theatre as a means to exercise voice and recognition among refugee communities. Overall, the workshop meant to further analyse and develop the intersections between activism, migration, community action and the arts.
