Welcome to our website for the course ‘Life in the UK: Exploring British Culture’

This project seeks to understand the value located in a range of arts/cultural activities to refugees, a group new to British cultural life who are often marginalised from ‘mainstream’ cultural activities, but who are simultaneously expected to adopt a hegemonic national identity of Britishness and henceforward espouse British cultural values.

Every Wednesday morning from January to April 2014 we meet at the Brighton Minority Ethnic Community Partnership near to Brighton railway station.

Arts and Humanities Research CouncilThis is a research project that is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

It forms part of the AHRC Cultural Value research cluster.
