To what extent can art affect change when addressing issues of migration, displacement, and access? Join us for a two-day event that explores the capacity of artists and arts institutions to intervene in the current geopolitical climate.

Speakers include Gurminder K. Bhambra, Professor of Postcolonial and Decolonial Studies in the School of Global Studies, University of Sussex; artists Kathrin Böhm, Daniela Ortiz and Oliver Ressler; curators Natasha Marie Llorens and Alicia ChillidaAne Rodríguez Armendariz, Director of Tabakalera - International Centre for Contemporary Culture, San Sebastián; and editors Justinien Tribillon and Dámaso Randulfe, Migrant Journal.

This is No Longer That Place is part of the European Cooperation project 4Cs: From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture co-funded by Creative Europe, with UK activities co-funded by the Royal College of Art.

4Cs seeks to understand how training and education in art and culture can constitute powerful resources to address the issue of conflict as well as to envision creative ways in which to deal with conflictual phenomena.

This is a partnership of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa; Tensta Konsthall; SAVVY Contemporary; Fundació Antoni Tàpies; Museet for Samtidskunst; Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs; Royal College of Art; and Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Art.
