The Channel invites you to communicate with people who you are kept apart from by the violence of borders and the hostility of the UK immigration system.
Step into a phone booth to send and receive voice messages with people who you're separated from, and record your own in response.
Listen. Ask a question, offer an answer, share a thought, a feeling, a memory, an idea...
Then come back and listen again.
You'll meet other people in your community who want to overcome these barriers and create an alternative to a hostile immigration system. This is a chance to imagine how we could achieve that in our community.
Where / When ?
In 2016 The Channel brought people in Oxford into contact with people in the Calais Migrant camp, on the day the 'Calais wall' was announced. [more]
In September 2018 we will connect people in Bristol with people in UK Immigration Removal Centres (detention centres). [more]
We hope to open The Channel in other locations where the border regime, fear, or a failure of democracy keep people apart. Please contact us if you want us to visit you.
