Weekly Drop In

At the heart of MaMa’s activities is a weekly drop-in. Every Wednesday we share food, have a choir rehearsal, plan fundraising events, and support members who are going through the asylum system.

We welcome visitors, volunteers and donations to make this happen. This weekly time we spend together forges our friendships that provide a safety net. Often gender based violence whether it is domestic violence, rape, sexual slavery, FGM or trafficking results in people not being able to advocate for themselves in a hostile system. If we want to see an end to this violence we need to support survivors.

Migrant Story Slam / Cartographies of Justice

Cartographies of Justice
Liverpool Hope University
Saturday 8th December 2012, 1-7pm

Cartographies of Justice was  a creative investigation into citizenship, migration and belonging with an eye on social and ecological justice. The event brought together internationally renowned art activists, writers, poets and performance practitioners (in feminist alphabetical order) Jennifer Verson, Katherina Radeva, Natasha Davis and Sai Murray with Liverpool-based artists and members of the migrant community (Migrant Artists Mutual Aid and Merseyside Refugee and Asylum Seekers Pre and Post Natal Group).

As part of the Cartographies of Justice, Migrant Artists Mutual Aid organised a Migrant Story Slam:

Imagine having just three minutes to tell your story. This is the story that your life depends upon and for one night only the judges are not from the courts but are members of the audience.

The Migrant Story Slam brings together the lively world of slam poetry and the high stakes reality of storytelling that is part of the lives of migrants. From passport control through asylum hearings to the check out at supermarkets, people who cross borders must continuously explain where they come from and why.

Slam Performers included Ben Belmar, Jennifer Verson, Lorena Rivero de Beer, Mark Loudon, Pa Modou Bojang and Zodwa Nyoni amongst others.
