Asia-Art-Activism Research Network is a cross-disciplinary and intergenerational network of artists, curators and academics investigating ‘Asia’, ‘art’ and ‘activism’ in the UK through research, dialogue, practice and collective work. In July we were given a years residency at Raven Row. 3 Months on, we shall be opening up our work, collective and otherwise to the public and our wider network. Come and meet us, join in, or just see what we are up to!

We seek to open up a conversation around ‘Asia’ as a contested paradigm, including its diasporas, migrant and resident communities, to attend to lesser known narratives of Asian artists and activists in the UK, especially that of Southeast Asian communities.

We aim to question Asian/Southeast Asian invisibility within institutional narratives of British art and politics and to gain a greater understanding of alliances built with other artistic and civic movements including the Black Arts Movement.
