The Justice Arts and Migration Network was formed between Lincoln and Hong Kong in 2018:

  • To interrogate the role of arts practice in articulating the status of citizenship and belonging for migrant demographics;

  • To deploy creative research methodologies in the discovery and analysis of migrant perspectives within and across national and sub-national borders;

  • To reframe and re-test contemporary theoretical articulations of the migrant condition through situated arts-based interventions.

The Network’s aims are based on the existing research practices and findings of our original membership, but seeks to build a welcoming and collaborative infrastructure through which academics, scholars, service providers, and activists from all over the world can learn from one another. We are especially honoured when those who bring lived experience to their professional perspectives and contributions form part of our collective and our debates.
