About this event

Panel Discussion on Art and Social Change

Join our panellists as they discuss how the arts can provide a platform for the voices of marginalised groups and people in Bradford and beyond. Hear from people working in the arts and local community about what activity is happening and what social and political change it can lead to.

We want to hear from you! Come and share your thoughts about what the arts is doing, or could do better for you and your community!

The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A.

Through collaborative practice Juan seeks to represent the traumatic experience of displacement mainly in video and installation.

Qisetna, which in Arabic means "our story" attempts to encapsulate a narrative of individuals internally displaced, on the run crossing borders, or resettling across Europe and beyond.
