Where I’m Coming From

3rd to 30th August 2020
Supported by the Yinka Shonibare Foundation and the Ministry of Culture, Taiwan.

The month-long digital residency will dedicate one week to four languages that are very much present and spoken by a big portion of the migrant community actively working and contributing to the British economy and yet highly invisible: Filipino, Taiwanese, Yoruba and Berber languages. The aim is to reach out to their respective communities based in the UK in order to generate a space to recognise their own culture and traditions, as well as participating in the wider debate around the exclusivity of language in accessing the production and consumption of arts and culture. At the same time, the project wants to open up conversations within the sector to discuss the inclusion of underrepresented artists and groups, and their wider cultural presence in the international debate.

The project aims to increase opportunities for new ways of working collaboratively, mixing practices and rethinking the impact and role of arts and culture in a pandemic and post-pandemic scenario, keeping serious emphasis and careful thought of the vested importance of highlighting diversity and multiculturalism in such unique times. Along with this, the project also investigates and experiments on how to relocate and adapt concepts from one milieu to another, from a physical space to  a digital one  and vice versa.  

Where I’m Coming From is curated by _inventory Platform curators Rhine Bernardino and Linda Rocco, and is made possible with the support of the Yinka Shonibare Foundation and the Ministry of Culture, Taiwan.
