The 29th March is the day the UK is set to leave the European Union. It remains unclear what form this departure will take, but what is certain is that the British political landscape has changed. Brexit’s nationalist and protectionist narrative has occupied the centre of our public discourse for two years, and with it we have seen a corresponding rise in xenophobia, islamophobia, and racism.

Join us from the 28th to the 30th of March for a festival of film, discussion, poetry, art, and performance. We will be celebrating the power of collaboration. The power of refusing borders,and refusing insularity: the power of solidarity. We will be showcasing the collaborative work of British, European and international artists.

The event will raise funds for refugee and migrant projects in Greece and Calais. Join us to stand against the nationalist narratives which seek to close our borders. Join us to stand against the neo-liberal institutions which promote European exceptionalism and ‘Fortress Europe’. Join us to remember those who have lost their lives trying to reach Europe in search of safety.

Come and join the conversation… #BeyondBordersBAC
