Join leading researchers and artists working on the nineteenth-century histories of migration in the context of empire for a free workshop at the Migration Museum as part of the Being Human Festival.
Does migration have a history? What stories remain from the archives about people who move countries and resettle elsewhere? Migration, in its many forms, transformed nineteenth-century life around the world.
In this workshop, join leading researchers and artists working on the nineteenth-century histories of migration in the context of empire.
Get introduced to the real-life stories of people who moved – or who were forced to move – in the nineteenth-century through their letters, diaries and published accounts of migration.
There will be an opportunity to engage creatively with this material, and to share your own migration stories in a hands-on participatory workshop.
The workshop will be accompanied by a guided tour of the Museum’s current exhibition, Departures.
Bring history to life in this workshop and learn something new.
This event is part of the Being Human festival, the UK’s only national festival of the humanities, taking place 11–20 November 2021. For further information please see beinghumanfestival.org.
