Join Einas and Agnes from the Community Programme Team for an intriguing tour of Migration: a human story, a series of interventions installed throughout PHM’s main galleries.
Discover how the history of Britain is one of constant migration, in and out, and how the recent refugee crisis is not a new concept as we challenge you to rethink what you know about migration. The tour will touch on the process behind the project and how PHM has worked with a Community Programme Team, made up of people whose lives have been shaped by migration, since summer 2019 to deliver this ambitious project.
Journey through newly commissioned interpretation, a series of animations exploring the differing reasons people come to the UK, and a banner challenging us to consider why the contribution migrants make to the UK has been so often overlooked and undervalued. With support from Art Fund and The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust.
Please note the animations in this project contain descriptions of traumatic migration experiences that some visitors may find distressing. Stories covered include experiences of modern day slavery, seeking asylum on the basis of sexuality, and lived experience of a refugee camp and the resettlement process.
Part of PHM’s programme exploring migration, co-created by a Community Programme Team made up of people whose lives have been shaped by migration.
