How do migrants see Europe? As part of our thematic focus on Europe in 2019, we will explore this question together with Dash Arts and artists Imran Ayata and Bülent Kullukçu at the beginning of the new year.

Since 2010 Dash Arts is hosting a monthly event called Dash Café featuring conversation, live performance, film and music. In January 2019 Berlin-based German-Turkish novelist Imran Ayata and artist, director and composer Bülent Kullukçu will be joining the Dash Café. The two artists are the co-curators of Songs of Gastarbeiter Vol.1, a compilation which features music by guest workers and pays tribute to the cultural contribution made by the first wave of migrants to Germany.

Furthermore, we will delve into the legacy of the Windrush Generation with poet Hannah Lowe and Artistic Director of WINDRUSH70 – Brent's Pioneering Windrush Generation Zerritha Brown, and explore its impact on contemporary UK culture with conversation, music and a DJ set.
