19 August 2021

We are very happy to invite you to GenSeM's first online symposium.

Over two days, we will discuss the gendered nature of social boundaries, ways individuals of migrant backgrounds have challenged them, and how art can become a way to express belonging and to analyse & share migration experiences. 

The event will take place on September 21-22, 2021 12.00-2.45 (BTS) both days. Delegates will also be able to join the online exhibition The Strength of Friendship, with original photographs by Fotonomads - a Photo Collective with amateur photographers who are or have been seeking asylum in the UK.

Please find the full programme below.

The event is obviously free, but please register here  https://gensemsept.eventbrite.co.uk

We look forward to welcoming you there.
