This report summarises our research and provides evidence on the impact of the Hostile Environment policy on the cultural sector in the UK. As a group of migrants directly experiencing increasing hostility in the cultural sector, we launched a UK-wide survey between May and July 2019 to collect key information on the experiences of all cultural workers, migrant and non-migrant.
This research report should be read alongside the following reports on the Hostile Environment: Corporate Watch’s ‘The Hostile Environment: turning the UK into a nation of border cops’ (2017) and Liberty’s ‘A Guide to the Hostile Environment' (2019)
Hostile Environments: Testimonies from the Migrants in Culture Research Report is now also available to read.
