The number of migrants and their economic impact are often measured and the figures cited in the media. These numbers miss the human element: the cultural, literary and artistic perspectives of emigration and migration. The eMigrating Landscapes Project, led by Urszula Chowaniec, investigates how language underpins activity after displacement. What happens to the art when an artist relocates? Meet the Poles making art and a home in London. This event is aimed at an English-speaking audience. (Polish and non-Polish speakers welcome.)

I am Polish: Meet the Artists

Including: Joanna Rajkowska, talking with UCL Art Museum; Małgorzata Gryglicka Dawidek, a drop in session chaired by Urszula Chowaniec; Dominika Akuszewska & Play Poland Film Festival on contemporary migration in films; Queer Poland chaired by Richard Mole.

Organised by Dr Urszula Chowaniec.
