Munira MirzaPublic Lectures: Immigration, identity and multiculturalism


Held on: Wednesday 2nd April, 7-9:30pm


Speaker: Munira Mirza


How have attitudes to immigration changed historically? What does modern multiculturalism as policy and lived experience offer us today: a harmonious East End or a divisive focus on difference?


Munira Mirza writes, lectures and broadcasts on issues related to cultural policy, race and identity. Her works include 'Culture Vultures: Is UK arts policy damaging the arts?' (ed.) 2006; 'Living Apart Together: British Muslims and the Paradox of Multiculturalism', 2007; Printed Project, Issue 8, 2007 (ed). She is also a founding member of the Manifesto Club and has recently joined the London Mayoral Office as the Director of Policy, Arts, Culture and the Creative Industries.
