Borders are a concept and a reality that restrict and permit people in different measure. Physical, social, psychological, they hold slow and they hold fast.

Creative Unions: Free Movement of Culture is a two day international artist gathering where the only desire is to make space to ask questions and share different forms of knowledge about what is proximate to us now; culturally, socially, historically, geographically, personally and politically. And it invites you. In fact, it invites you plus one.

CUFMC is a platform and exchange where individuals occupy space/s, sound and listen. It welcomes self-defining recent graduates to produce, provoke and participate in a convivial space where discussion around cooperation and cultural agency foreground any objects, images or situations we might create.

CUFMC is an open forum for sharing and debate rooted in the experience of cultural producers as active, global citizens with common insights, intentions and senses that unite; even when interpretations are undecided or conflicted.


The hosts, (Sophie Chapman and Kerri Jefferis, Paul Haywood and Basia Sliwinska) actively welcome marginalised voices and those interested in maintaining and extending cultural freedoms beyond the reach of political institutions.
