NOW Gallery

Citizens of Everywhere

As part of the annual NOW Later series, NOW Gallery interrogates the stigma of ‘otherness’, whilst contemplating historical and evolving racial tensions in the wake of the global pandemic through the eyes of Black, South, South East and East Asian communities. Coinciding with Black History Month, Citizens of Everywhere presents a series of film projects celebrating activism, rituals and the  constantly shifting idea of ‘home’ and  global citizens.

In a world where diasporic people and communities contribute to infinite blueprints of hybrid identities; where many are not from one place but multiple, how do we create our own sense of home? How do marginalised communities foster a spirit of solidarity, whilst navigating trauma? Who is to say that we are citizens of nowhere?
