The Homeland(s): CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS

By Benjamin G M Meunier, on 2 March 2017

[copied from liblist]

 

Are you a migrant from one of the EU countries living, working or studying in London?

If so, CyberCitizens Theatre Collective would like to invite you to take part in their interactive installation project ‘The Homeland(s): real and imagined’, which will be part of the UCL Festival of Culture. The installation will be publicly displayed at UCL in June 2017.

 

We would like to hear your story of arriving in London. What were your first impressions? What does London mean to you? What made you feel at home here?

We will be recording a collection of short stories, which will be used to create an interactive sound and visual artwork.

 

If you would like to share your story, please contact us at contact@cybercitizens.org 

 

You can also check our website for updates and announcements about the project.

    Just to point put that, until the UK leaves the EU, EU citizens currently residing in the UK are EU citizens and not migrants.

    Would it be possible to have an email list that EU library staff or others interested by our fate, so that we could share information and things. Some of us have already stared doing it but maybe more would like to join.

    Dr Paul Ayris, as Pro-Vice-Provost, has discussed with senior officers in UCL about the suggestion of Library staff using UCL resources to have a Brexit email list. Since this is a matter which affects staff across UCL, the advice is that UCL’s Brexit website http://www.ucl.ac.uk/eu-referendum and email address eustaffqueries@ucl.ac.uk should be used for information and support from UCL. Where there are questions which the website does not answer, they should be sent to Paul Ayris as Head of Department who can pass them on to the relevant Officer in UCL.

    Colleagues from the EU should have received, in the past few days, a questionnaire which UCL has circulated to EU staff asking about the effectiveness of support measures already put in place and any suggestions you might have going forwards. If you have not already completed it, I would urge you to do so before it closes on 14/03 and to include your ideas in there: https://opinio.ucl.ac.uk/s?s=47785. UCL will consider feedback, for instance if there is clear demand for a forum or other type of interactive platform to get support and advice from their peers in similar situations.

    UCL employees can access personal support from the University’s Employee Assistance Programme (EAP, http://www.ucl.ac.uk/hr/occ_health/eap.php) on a confidential basis. Support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year for staff.
