People who have saved this event:


Join Arts Catalyst for a conversation with Dr Umut Erel and Erene Kaptani, exploring social practices that imagine new forms of citizenship, and social and political agency for migrants.


While borders become less fluid and increasingly difficult to cross, we are posed with the question, who is the citizen? How can the notion of citizenship be expanded and re-thought in the light of new global economic, environmental and political challenges?

The conversation stems from a range of empirical projects with migrant mothers, where, through participatory theatre, they have explored how migrant women’s mothering and care practices expand the notion of citizenship.

The event forms part of Dreamed Native Ancestry (DNA), an installation and programme critically addressing and re-thinking contemporary issues around race, migration, biopolitics and culture, through an Afrofuturist science fiction narrative and deep history perspective.

A performance by sound artists Dubmorphology will follow the talk (from approximately 4pm), during which visitors are free to come and go as they please.

This event is free and open to all, although we recommend reserving a place
