THE BORDERS WITHIN: BRITISH COUNCIL X LYRIX ORGANIX
If you could rewrite Britain… what would you do? In the middle of one of the most eventful periods of UK’s political history, Lyrix Organix x Active Citizens (in partnership with British Council) launch The Borders Within – a counteraction to Brexit. A 5-day social leadership workshop programme leading to a collection of artistic responses in the form of community social action projects – on the theme of ‘Island and Isolation’ e.g. mental health, housing, immigration, LGBTQ+, class, ethnicity, intergenerational, social media.
“We have a great opportunity. As we redefine our nationhood we can work to create a country that is open, vibrant, resilient and diverse. We can show that our borders are not constructed to further an ideology of isolationism and discrimination” (The Borders Within – Spurrier, 2018)
