Night Scenes is a series of events examining how night spaces have been imagined, produced, experienced and narrated in European cities by communities who have mobilised around particular migrant identities or histories. These events are linked to a three-year transdisciplinary European research project - NITE - exploring nocturnal public spaces in eight European cities (Aarhus, Amsterdam, Berlin, Cork, Galway, Lisbon, London, Rotterdam). The project, and events, set out to explore night-time urban settings in their complexity as sites of crisis and regeneration, memory and heritage, visibility and invisibility, community solidarity and growth, and to contribute evidence from the arts and humanities to policy and wider debates on cities at night.
