Congratulations to CMCI’s Dr Ricarda Vidal, who has just received news from Arts Council England that she has won for a grant of £9,000 to support her “Talking Transformations: Home on the Move” project.
The money will go towards a travelling exhibition and a programme of public workshops and talks. The exhibition of poems, literary translations, art films and sound work will be installed at the Whitstable Biennale (64a Gallery Whitstable) from June 9th -10th; the Ledbury Poetry Festival from June 29th to July 8th; and at the Poetry Library Southbank Centre from July 26th to October 14th.
“Talking Transformations” is a platform to examine what “home” means at a time when notions of “home” in Europe are becoming more fluid, and being challenged and reshaped by unprecedented migration. Full details are at: http://www.talkingtransformations.eu
“Talking Transformations” is led by Ricarda and Manuela Perteghella, who is a translation theorist, translator and curator.
