Sharp minds with focused views discuss perspectives on migration in a live panel debate. Areas of discussion include cultural identity, human rights and immigration and how they relate to citizenship, participation and the interpretation and production of art. To what extent can art explore issues of migration and cultural difference? What are the issues around identity, and why do people have to be put in a box? If we are all multicultural now, what is next?

Roger Phillips, BBC Radio Merseyside (Chair)

Artist Kai-Oi Jay Yung’s interdisciplinary practice explores issues across nations, identity and politics. Through performance and technologies, Yung is driven by a desire to reconfigure hegemony, language and ritual through a process that refuses to be categorised by any one theme or discipline. Her recent solo exhibition Interval; A Narrative Psychosis took place at Cornerhouse in Manchester (11 December 2010 – 16 January 2011).
