2014 UCL Festival of the Arts (29 May)

eMigrating Landscapes Project presents a series of event

Telling Mother Tongues.

I am Polish: Meet the Artists


29th of May: UCL Roberts G08 Sir David Davies Lecture Theatre, 

Roberts Building, Malet Place



The numbers of migrants and their economic impact are often measured and discussed in the media. But these figures miss the human element: the cultural, literary and artistic perspectives of emigration and migration. The eMigrating Landscapes Project, led by dr. Urszula Chowaniec, investigates how language underpins activity after displacement. What happens to art when its creator relocates? Meet the Poles making both art and homes in London.

These events are aimed at an English-speaking audience. (Polish and non-Polish speakers welcome.)
