The Sky Doesn't Have Any B O U N D A R I E S

We invite you to an exquisite evening of a play, curated music and a documentary film. The works serve to highlight the varied experience of immigrating and emigrating and what triggers this stressful process. The event is in English, but some parts will also be in French, German and Romanian.

The Sun Never Sets On An Empty Stomach:
This is a play that explores different stories of fight or flight, flee or stay, live or die, or love, laughter and skullduggery. Each of the 49 stories on show is centred around voluntary or forced movement across borders.
There is a game of Dodgeball too! Imagine that?! So, join us on our eventful journey, exploring concepts of personality, gender identity and nationality in the vastness of the moon, the stars and the bountiful sky!

The Demilitarisation of the Korean Peninsula by the Zimbabwe Defence Forces:
Another long title! Well, this is a light-footed documentary film about the experience of being an Immigrant, as shared by the scrupulous cast and the camera-shy crew of the project.

Panel discussion: Criminalization of solidarity with refugees - time for the EU to act!

Over the past few years, ordinary citizens and civil society organisations providing humanitarian assistance to refugees have been experiencing an alarming policing of their activities across Europe. This panel will provide a discussion with individuals that have been or are being investigated by the courts for helping refugees, and the policy options available to put an end to the criminalization of solidarity. The shrinking space for solidarity with migrants and refugees is putting the core values of European democracies at risk. Today, the front line is migration. Tomorrow, these techniques could be used widely in Europe against anyone campaigning on the environment, free speech, diversity and so on.
