Arts for Advocacy

“MIGRATION. RÉCITS. MOUVEMENTS.” is a video and photographic exhibition, part of the project “Arts for Advocacy: Creative Engagement with forced displacement in Morocco” (Global Challenges Research Funds AHRC-ESRC), a collaboration between Keele University and the University of Edinburgh.

“MIGRATION. RÉCITS. MOUVEMENTS.” is the creative outcome of workshops organised with Moroccan and French artists (Amine Oulmakki, Dabcha, and Julien Fleurance) bringing together citizens from Morocco as well as from Western and Central African countries who live in Rabat (Morocco). The exhibition retraces stories of journeys, obstacles, relationships, love, broken dreams and new hopes. Viewers are invited to navigate a space where bodies trace their own emotional and physical journeys: their stories, their gazes question our imaginary and unsettle our perceptions of forced displacement.

Exhibition curated by Yvon Langue, Morocco-based curator and co-founder of Untitled, an Editorial design, Art Direction, and Curatorial duo in Marrakech, Morocco. 
Dr Mariangela Palladino is Senior Lecturer in Postcolonial and Cultural Studies at the University of Keele and is Project Co-Director for Arts for Advocacy
