University of the Arts London

Grant period




The Decolonising Art Institute, at the University of the Arts London, was founded to challenge colonial legacies, altering ways of seeing, listening, thinking and making in order to drive cultural, social and institutional change. With Foundation support, the Institute will create a network of leading researchers and academics who have been working on artistic engagement with the history of early Chinese immigration. Researchers across six academic institutions in the UK, US, Canada and Germany will share insights into their research and develop content for workshops which explore artists’ engagement with the history of early Chinese immigration in their respective locations.
