Abstract

New Midlanders (Fortress Europe) is an ongoing socially engaged project that involves self-reflective photo-artworks and interviews with asylum seekers and refugees. Funded by the Creative Exchange programme (granted funds by Connecting Cultures) to support public engagement projects between Warwick and Coventry Universities. New Midlanders (Fortress Europe) by Darryl Georgiou and Rebekah Tolley with research assistance from Dr Harbinder Sandhu (Warwick Medical School) and Tarla Patel (Warwick University). The project has facilitated social inclusion and participation with marginalized communities; using various photo-workshops, sound and video interviews to communicate research and practice outcomes. The ambition being to generate positive, social research via workshops; working with partners across the West Midlands, including Coventry Peace House, to explore challenges facing the displaced. Collaborating with partners and individuals through an ongoing educational programme & partnership – in association with Coventry Asylum and Refugee Action Group (CARAG). The project centres on a collaboration with people who have become dislocated from communities in their home countries and have subsequently arrived in the West Midland region. Links have also been developed with other organisations including: Hope Into Action Black Country (housing the homeless), Wolverhampton, working with destitute asylum seekers who have no recourse to public funds, and individuals fleeing violence, conflict, war and persecution (from countries including Sudan and Darfur, Eritrea, Syria, Iran and Kuwait). Forthcoming project collaborations are scheduled with Birmingham - UpRising (Surviving to Thriving) providing 500 young, unaccompanied refugees and asylum seekers with practical life skills, mental health support, and leadership opportunities. The project has facilitated community engagement and participation; using various photo-workshops and sound interviews to communicate outcomes to the wider public. An exhibition and publication is planned for 2019 (with a view to further development for the Coventry City of Culture 2021).
