Never at Sea, a new exhibition by Dr Kate McMillan, a London-based artist and Senior Lecturer in Creative Practice at the Department for Culture, Media and Creative Industries at King’s College London, will be displayed at St Mary le Strand Church from 21 – 27 June. The project explores forced migration and the climate crisis through film, sound, performance and sculptural intervention.

The exhibition has been developed in response to a series of arts-based workshops for women who have experienced forced migration, ran by Dr McMillan in collaboration with the Refugee Council, Lewisham Refugee Resettlement Project and King’s Sanctuary Programme.

The free public exhibition Never at Sea will be complemented by a series of events and artistic performances. The project will be brought to life by a performance developed in collaboration with composer Cat Hope and choreographer Sivan Rubinstein, featuring percussionist Louise Devenish, vocalist Macia Lemke-Kern and dancer Lydia Walker. The exhibition will be concluded by a symposium featuring socially engaged artists and organisations using creative practice to make a difference in their communities.
