I hope you don't mind me sharing the following symposium that we have coming up at Watermans, which might be of interest to the list.
As part of the Altered Landscapes exhibition programme, we are very pleased to announce a symposium to discuss issues of displacement and migration, exploring how art can catalyse debate around human rights and create a dialogue around these issues.
Speakers include international artists May Abdalla and Juan delGado, curator and Co-Director of Culture+Conflict Michaela Crimmin and Áine O’Brien, Co-Director of Counterpoint Arts.
The discussion will be chaired by Saphia Crowther, editor at Amnesty International.
