Kayo Chingonyi: A Creative/Critical Residency on Migration

Project: Research

NullPointerException

Description

This residency for poet Kayo Chingonyi is a collaboration between Humanities and Arts Research Centre, Royal Holloway and Counterpoints Arts.

The arts and humanities have a vital role to play in shaping our responses to the current crisis of migration at Europe’s borders. We look to the arts not only for an understanding of who we are and how we relate to others, but also the kind of society we want to live in. A public conversation about these ideas has never been more urgently needed.

The idea of the residency is to provide the opportunity for a genuinely collaborative approach to work on current forced migration from within the arts and humanities.
