Current debates about migration often focus on the divide between those with and those without a right to belong in the UK. It is easy to forget the hearts we have in common. Moving Hearts invites you to participate in an art and research project that raises questions about belonging.
Come and participate in a series of free 2.5 hour workshops at the Migration Museum at The Workshop, where you will get to share your own thinking and feelings about the right to belong while making clay human hearts. Each heart is unique, although artist Penny Ryan will take you through six basic steps to make a heart (no prior art experience is needed).
All hearts made during these workshops will be carried in a procession from King’s College London to the Migration Museum at The Workshop on Saturday 24 March, where they will form part of an installation, accompanied by a series of short talks and an open forum discussion for people to share thoughts, questions, feelings, experiences, ideas, stories, and work related to migration and belonging. The installation will be on display on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 March. Visit our event page for more details on the procession and installation.

About Moving Hearts
Moving Hearts is a collaboration between Australian artist Penny Ryan and Professor Anna Reading and Dr James Bjork from King’s College London. Moving Hearts builds on Penny’s Connecting Hearts Project, which has involved 1000s of people in Sydney reflecting on their connection with people seeking asylum, particularly those in detention.
Moving Hearts links King’s College London with the Migration Museum at The Workshop and our current exhibition No Turning Back, Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain. Clay Time is supporting Moving Hearts by providing clay and firing the hearts.
Moving Hearts is funded through an international social justice grant from the PLuS Alliance. This project has ethics approval from King’s College London- MR/17/18-207
