Home? An open forum as part of MK International Festival

26 July, 2018 - 15:30 to 17:30

Festival Central, Campbell Park, Milton Keynes

What is the meaning of home? What does it mean to have, to create, to be, or to feel at home? How do different communities and individuals – migrants, refugees, minorities, the differently abled, the young, the old, those with and without physical homes – interpret the meaning of home? What can their distinct interpretations tell us about the meaning of dwelling, inhabiting, and creating a home in a world of instability, inequality and flux? Join us for an open forum ideas lab intended to inspire, challenge and provoke.
