SCAN Summit 2019: Unsettled Status - Brexit, Borders and the Hostile Environment
The UK is scheduled to leave the EU at 11pm on March 29. The Brexit referendum and the Article 50 process take place in the wider context of the “hostile environment” and of government policy towards migration. As the Brexit deadline approaches, with little certainty about outcomes, we want to talk through the current state of play. Where we are now? How did we get here? And what should we do?
The SCAN Summit will be an afternoon of presentations, provocations and discussion inviting experts, commentators and cultural figures to join the visual art sector in thinking through the issues and the implications for culture.
Our speakers include Irish investigative journalist Peter Geoghegan, Saltire Prize winning writer Chitra Ramaswamy, Professor of History Tanja Bueltmann, and poet Nadine Aisha Jassat, one of Scotland’s 30 Inspiring Young Women Under 30.
The SCAN Summit is open to all, but please book as places are limited. In the morning, SCAN will hold our members-only AGM.
10.00 – 13.15 SCAN AGM (members only includes lunch)
13.30 – 17.00 SCAN Summit (open to all)
17.00 – 18.00 Refreshments.
For more information regarding tickets and scheduling, please check the Eventbrite.
We hope to see you there!
