Responding to question of remaining in the single market and freedom of movement between the UK and EU, recent reports of British citizens potentially opting in for a EU citizenship, and the eventual change in colour from burgundy to bright blue – the passport as a necessary travel document for all nationals crossing borders, entering and leaving the UK and EU, has become a contentious issue shared by both sides of the EU referendum debate.

HOME_OFFICE attempts to make a Safe Space for both sides of the EU Referendum to debate on a critical level in order to plan together joint demands. A Safe Space is a place where anyone can relax and be able to fully express, without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or unsafe on account of biological sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, cultural background, religious affiliation, age, or physical or mental ability. A place where the rules guard each person’s self-respect and dignity and strongly encourage everyone to respect others.
HOME_OFFICE is a project devised by Sebastian H-W in collaboration with the artists of Object Book hosted at Meanwhile Space Projects, funded by Undivided Event Programme and Livity UK.
Object Book is a pop up experimental book arts studio, founded by artist Chloe Spicer, running a programme of community and artists workshops and events.
Meanwhile Space CIC is the pioneering social enterprise at the forefront of ‘meanwhile uses’. As the market leader in Meanwhile uses since 2009, Meanwhile Space designs innovative Meanwhile® solutions to vacant commercial space, working across sectors to deliver Meanwhile projects and strategies, operate affordable workspace, and deliver longer term Meanwhile developments.
WeAreUndivided will ensure that the voice of young people is not overlooked in the most significant process of our generation. Our campaign does not seek to reverse the referendum result, but instead to move forwards by setting out where we go from here as a country. Undivided will accept all demands from young people, and then manage a voting process to decide on the top ten demands as stated by UK 13-29 year olds.
