Stories from the cliff-edge: Brexit and Me
7 December 2017
A public event which highlights the personal effect of Brexit is taking place as part of Cardiff University’s Cardiff Speaks Initiative.
Stories from the cliff-edge: Brexit and Me will be held at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff on Saturday 9 December and will shine a light upon the often overlooked, personal dimension of Brexit and the UK’s vote to leave the EU which took place on 23 June 2016.
Since June 2016, much debate and discussion has taken place around the measures which need to be taken in the UK’s divorce from its European counterparts. However, these discussions often fail to answer the questions of thousands of European citizens who have chosen Britain as their home.
This event will be the opportunity to hear from our non-UK European colleagues, friends, family members, neighbours and peers who have all had their own way of reacting to and coping with this momentous political decision. We will also be listening to the views of our students as the future generation. The event will give attendees the chance to buy the book In Limbo edited by Elena Remigi and Véronique Martin which is a collective testimony of EU voices. In Limbo was created as a result of a Facebook group set up in March 2017 to provide a voice to the many individuals whom the Brexit Referendum has affected.
Cardiff Speaks is an interdisciplinary research initiative between Research Connect (the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences interdisciplinary research network) and SPARK
