Welcome to Beyond Borders UK

This website provides a service to artists and organisations across the East Midlands of the United Kingdom and those interested in becoming involved in work or developing contacts within the region. Our primary interest is to build and maintain a network of artists who have arrived in this country from around the world. We aim to promote their work, explore the issues they face and to support work with new and established 'arrival' communities. Many artists are in exile from their countries of origin, others have chosen to settle here for other reasons - we welcome anyone who has an experience of and love for the arts and culture of the wider world.

This site was developed by Charnwood Arts as part of the Beyond Borders knowledge transfer project, funded through the AHRC. You can read about the longer journey we took here. Academic research working in partnership with grass roots projects to promote policy transformation
