“Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving. . . it is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic,a performance and a balm and a benediction.” – Variety

Migrant Story Slam / Cartographies of Justice

Cartographies of Justice
Liverpool Hope University
Saturday 8th December 2012, 1-7pm

Cartographies of Justice was  a creative investigation into citizenship, migration and belonging with an eye on social and ecological justice. The event brought together internationally renowned art activists, writers, poets and performance practitioners (in feminist alphabetical order) Jennifer Verson, Katherina Radeva, Natasha Davis and Sai Murray with Liverpool-based artists and members of the migrant community (Migrant Artists Mutual Aid and Merseyside Refugee and Asylum Seekers Pre and Post Natal Group).

As part of the Cartographies of Justice, Migrant Artists Mutual Aid organised a Migrant Story Slam:

Imagine having just three minutes to tell your story. This is the story that your life depends upon and for one night only the judges are not from the courts but are members of the audience.

The Migrant Story Slam brings together the lively world of slam poetry and the high stakes reality of storytelling that is part of the lives of migrants. From passport control through asylum hearings to the check out at supermarkets, people who cross borders must continuously explain where they come from and why.

Slam Performers included Ben Belmar, Jennifer Verson, Lorena Rivero de Beer, Mark Loudon, Pa Modou Bojang and Zodwa Nyoni amongst others.

Migrant Artists Mutual Aid

Migrant Artists Mutual Aid is a network of people who come together to produce community cultural events that aim to promote cohesion and intercultural understanding while raising money for migrants in crisis.

Mutual Aid is not charity, it is a safety net that is based on shared values of justice and equality, it is a safety net that affirms that even in the toughest times when we stand together we are stronger.
