Cats on the Run is a participatory project working with undocumented people during quarantine. This project was conceived by RAPAR and produced by Sheba Arts. Funded by Lankelly Chase Foundation.
The participants are from ran, Kurdistan-Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, Phillipines, Sierra Leone, Trinidad, and west Africa. All 22 people, 8 men, 10 women and 4 children, ranging in age from 12 years to 59 years who were involved in our creative processes were undocumented. By this we mean that they are living in the UK without status, outside of any legal processes that are currently considering their right to be in the UK, and with no entitlement to any support whatsoever unless they are living with their children in which case they maybe in Home Office funded accommodation. Two of our three mothers with children under 18 are in such accommodation and one is not.
This project is link with the UK process of OUYE.
