AWAC is very excited to promote this conference, because of the way they are bringing together artists, academics, and activists to collaborate and intervene together. We fully support the how The Center is working to bring together activists, academics and artists to address and approach issues about and surrounding migration.

They are looking for applicants to submit interventions and proposals in the form of workshops, art, papers, or activist experience somehow relating to the following three topics:

1) Printing or burning passports? For or against citizenship?

2) Power and privilege: decolonizing migration struggles

3) How to critique today’s border regimes?
