The Art of Migration

 
 
 

In 2015, we delivered the Art of Migration. This successful Arts Council-funded project offered a series of showcase artistic commissions for migrant artists in our region.

Diversity of art

At the showcase we took in a huge range of art, covering disciplines that reflected the personalities and stories of our featured artists from across the globe. 

This included poets, dancers, textiles, installation art, sculptors and musicians, providing a rich diversity of ways of communicating their stories, bringing to life outputs such as immigrants' struggle with complex identity and how we construct and disclose identity through the creative process.
