In collaboration with the University College London, St. George’s University of London, the Migration Collective and Community Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers (CARAS), we are hosting a day-long workshop exploring migrant health in the UK through art-based visual and narrative methodologies.
Our aim for this workshop is to foster a non-hierarchical space for diverse groups (policymakers, NGOs, advocacy groups, researchers and migrants) to explore migrant health together using art and other innovative public engagement methods. These methods can create opportunities for diverse forms of expression beyond textual and linguistic modes ensuring that all migrants’ voices are heard and at the centre of discussions around their health. We hope the workshop cultivates effective engagement which empowers migrant communities while informing the work of NGOs and academics.
In partnership with Migration Collective.
