Nightlife has been one of the casualties of the Covid-19 pandemic, with restrictions on gatherings and opening hours, venue closures and curfews putting an end to nightlife in public spaces as we knew it. As we take stock of the impact of the pandemic on our everyday lives one year on, the HERA project Night Spaces: migration, culture and integration in Europe (NITE) proposes two connected panels focusing on the urban night and public spaces and how the city after hours is experienced, imagined, and narrated by different communities – with a special focus on migrant groups. Mindful of our increasingly 24/7 world, with highly networked infrastructures, we also reflect on the importance of the ‘digital shift’, and its reliance on often invisible night labour, for the blurring between day and night.
