The Migration Museum Project is shining a light on the many ways that the movement of people to and from Britain across the ages has shaped who we are –as individuals, as communities, and as a nation. We are doing this through the creation of an inspiring national Migration Museum, a far-reaching nationwide education programme, and a knowledge-sharing network of museums and galleries across the UK.
We opened the Migration Museum at The Workshop in April 2017, housed in an arts and community space just off Albert Embankment in London. Here we build on our previous work and provide a permanent showcase for our adventurous programme of exhibitions, events and education workshops.
We have staged an acclaimed series of events at venues across the UK since 2013, shedding light on the central role that migration has played in making us who we are today. We host fresh and engaging multimedia and multi-sensory events that explore the complexity and human stories of migration, diving into the struggles, joys, creativity and resilience of living in a new land. By exploring the rich and fascinating history of migration and what it means to people across the UK, we hope to better engage communities with their own migrant population.
