Listening to the voices of refugee heritage artists: opportunities and barriers for performing arts practices carried out by refugee heritage artists in the UK

Listening to the Voices of Refugee Heritage Artists

UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER AND COMMUNITY ARTS NORTH WEST ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE A UNIQUE PHD RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY FOR 2020.

An opportunity to apply to undertake a fully funded PhD at the University of Manchester in collaboration with Community Arts North West.

Given how much writing and reflection has been carried out on refugees and the arts, it is surprising that little or no space has been made for the voice of those refugee heritage  artists who create and develop their own performance practices. This research sets out to challenge this lack of recognition and to gain a better understanding by carrying out a detailed investigation into the practices of artists from a refugee background who are living and working in the UK. For this reason, we would like to encourage suitable candidates from refugee backgrounds to apply.

Funds will be available to pay for the successful candidate to cover the cost of academic fees for 3.5 years plus a living allowance of approximately £15,000 pa. The post will commence in October 2020.

Recruitment has now closed.
