Centre for Migration Studies, University of Essex


On the 26th of September, University of Essex is launching their new Centre for Migration Studies. The event will create an opportunity for community organisations, NGOs, regional and local authorities, academics and students working in migration issues to get together and share their experiences and work. The launch will take place at Art Exchange’s main gallery, where Caroline Walker’s painting series ‘Home’ will be shown. This series highlights the psychological and spatial dimensions of the waiting process of five asylum seekers. Alongside this in the gallery’s Project Space, Imran’s Perretta’s short film ‘15 Days’ will be shown that focuses on the lives of asylum seekers in Calais after the Jungle was razed in 2016.

To sign up for the event, please register on their Eventbrite site.
