26 July – Freedom to Move, Belfast

Belfast Exposed logoThe Home Office recently introduced new restrictions on international artists and academics visiting the UK for talks, temporary exhibitions, concerts or artists’ residencies. Visitors now have to submit to a series of arduous and expensive procedures to get their visa, and then more bureaucratic controls when they are in the UK. Continuing to raise awareness and encourage discussion around issues of artistic freedom and mobility, Belfast Exposed invites you to join artist and writer Raimi Gbadamosi as he investigates questions of freedom, mobility and the arts.

The talk will be recorded and made available for download, as a first step towards making the participants of the session mobile. Participants can also bring their travel documents, and photographs taken whilst abroad.
