Remote...Local is a space for young migrants, those who are first, second, third or more generation migrant, as well as migrant allies to think and write about their experiences in/relation to St Leonards.

The group will document and map the migrant and international narratives of the town using live writing, speculative fiction, sound walks, zines, photography and other forms of making and writing. We will explore who and what counts as local and investigate how heritage and cultural differences shape a different relationship to a community and place.

Remote… Local is a community project led by migrants and allies who will form a working group to shape the vision of the project. 

The project is facilitated by Critical Interruptions, a migrant-led cooperative founded by Diana Damian-Martin and Bojana Janković. Together, Diana and Bojana talk, perform, write and think about migration, borders, internationalism and Eastern European identities and diasporic cultures.

Remote...Local is coordinated by Vanessa Farinha, a creative producer, artist and co-founder of The Nothing productions.
