A group of international artists discuss internationalism from a personal perspective in this online panel discussion as part of our Refuge series.
In the second part of our discussion on Rethinking Internationalism, a panel of artists from across the world considers what internationalism means to them. How have recent events shaped or changed their practice? What forces are at odds with the idea of internationalism, and how can we overcome those? The discussion will be chaired by Dr Idil Akinci-Perez, with panellists including playwright, dramaturg, and cultural activist Mudar Alhaggi, author and actor Antonythasan Jesuthasan.
As part of Refuge, artists, practitioners, academics and community leaders from across the globe come together in conversation, offering their perspectives on themes of internationalism, migration, displacement, inclusion and climate justice.
The Refuge series is supported by British Council, Edinburgh Futures Institute at the University of Edinburgh and Claire and Mark Urquhart
