Platforma 5 – Creating an Archive


Turner Contemporary, Margate

Join us to share and celebrate the rich history of arts, refugees and migration projects in Kent and to explore how we might work collectively to bring this archive to life.

12.00-14.00: Exhibition and activities

Films, documentation and objects from relevant projects that have taken place in Kent over the past 15 years. If you have work you would like to share, please contact

12:00 to 13:00: Adam Chodzko in conversation

Adam Chodzko, an internationally renowned, Kent-based artist, presents his past and current work engaging with questions of displacement, belonging and citizenship. Adam will be in conversation with Almir Koldzic, Co-Director of Counterpoints Arts.

14.00-16.00: Presentations and discussion led by Julie Neville and Douglas Noble

Initial research for Platforma has produced a list of dozens of arts, refugees and migration projects that have taken place in Kent over the past 15 years. What can we learn from this work? What impact has it had on artists, participants, audiences and the wider community? How might we build this archive and present it in a useable way to help the development of future projects?

All welcome. To reserve a free place contact

Part of the 5th Platforma Festival, produced by Counterpoints Arts
