Being Human Festival

It has never been faster than it is today to travel between Paris and London, and yet for some the route remains difficult and dangerous. For the 2016 Being Human festival, the research team of the Paris Centre for Migrant Writing and Expression is coordinating a series of translation laboratories with asylum seekers living in France and unable to complete their intended journey to the UK. Starting with extracts of texts by writers such as Voltaire or Vallès, participants will translate in the broadest sense of the term: writing, adapting, photographing and literally translating work into other languages. Join us for a presentation of this project, which will be transformed into an exhibition at Senate House.
