Stories from the cliff-edge: Brexit and Me

Brexit is not just a momentous political decision with enormous economic consequences. Brexit is personal. Brexit is emotional. It affects our own conception of ourselves because it changes who "we" is. This half day event aims to explore the personal dimension of Brexit by giving voice to testimonies of European non-UK citizens residents in Britain and to the experiences of some British Citizens. The event is sponsored by Cardiff University as part of the Cardiff Speaks Initiative.

Provisional Programme
