Event Details

A story of austerity, refugees and climate destruction told through poetry, music, and transmedia.

Climate justice stories from across the world weaved together via Afrobeat influences, experimental electronics, English Folk and deconstructed imperial anthems. 

Continent Chop Chop asks: What are the connections between climate change and poverty? How does the wider climate of austerity and scapegoating of migrants connect with climate change? And why should anyone care when they don't have enough to eat?

Featuring commissioned films from Nnimmo Bassey and Zena Edwards. Directed by Amanda Huxtable, and created by the Virtual Migrants collective (Sai Murray, Aidan Jolly, Maya Chowdhry, Tracey Zengeni, Kooj Chuhan, Jaydev Mistry).

Organiser

virtual migrants

Digital media and art connecting with race, migration and globalisation.

virtual migrants connects and engages artists with digital media, and organises projects that add new aesthetics and perspectives to themes of race, migration and globalisation.  virtual migrants create, exhibit and distribute artworks that incorporate digital media techniques that can be installed in galleries, public spaces or community venues.

virtual migrants association was founded in 1998 to bring together a range of artists, particularly those working in visual, music, performance and writing, to collaborate on moving image and new media projects. Its critical purpose is to add new aesthetics, artistic responses and perspectives to themes of race, migration and globalisation; to cross boundaries between artists and non-artists, including with theorists, activists and communities; to draw attention to expressions of migrants whose existence is held in question; and to artistically explore and respond to the causes of racialised political issues which continually make headline news.
