An experimental exchange of ideas between journalists and socially-engaged artists.
22 March 2023
The mass displacement of people is likely to be a defining feature of the 21st century. Climate change, war and instability, and systemic inequality all challenge our established ways of thinking and talking about migration. Are there new forms of storytelling that would help us meet the challenge? How would new technology shape that? This panel presents work in progress from Beyond the Now’s “collaborative incubator” – an experimental exchange of ideas between journalists and socially-engaged artists. Artist Dana Olarescu, filmmaker and activist Ashish Ghadiali, curator Dominik Czechowski and journalist and author Daniel Trilling are currently engaged in a research project in Palermo, Sicily aimed at drawing links between people’s experiences of displacement and the global systems that govern our lives. Two of the group will talk about their work, joined by experts in Digital Anthropology, Kit Braybrooke and Sarah Lemiem, Journalist.
The collaborative incubator is part of a wider project, run by the European Cultural Foundation, aimed at re-framing migration in European media.
Moderator: Daniel Trilling
