About the exhibition

Room to Breathe

Opens 1 November 2018 
Migration Museum at The Workshop
26 Lambeth High Street, London, SE1 7AG
Free admission

Open the door, put down your suitcase, take off your coat, let the outside world fade away. This is where it begins. A room that you can start to call a home. A room to breathe.

Room to Breathe is an immersive experience inviting you to discover stories from generations of new arrivals to Britain. Journey through a series of rooms filled with personal narratives and objects that bring to life the struggles, joys, creativity and resilience of living in a new land.

Explore rooms to sleep, eat, create and meet. Make these rooms your own. Open drawers, look through cupboards, settle into an armchair. Contribute your story and make connections to the past and present.

A programme of regular performances will accompany this exhibition.
