Moving between places and across borders is much more than just crossing them. It is a journey of ideas, talent and cultures. The beauty of movement is in the experience shared by so many, and the creativity, ideas and hopes of the people making these journeys. Yet, too often this beauty remains an untold migration story.
What if art and design can help make this story the new migration narrative? What if culture and policy communities can work together to achieve meaningful change? What if creatives can unlock different answers to enduring questions? What if design can help shift the public conversation in ways that drive local action?
To explore these questions, we are bringing together artists, designers, researchers and policymakers working together, often unconventionally, to form new communities of action. Join us on the 23rd of November from 6pm onwards at the Shoreditch Arts Club, 6 Redchurch St, London E2 7DD.
The event will be opened by a screening of ‘On Freedom of Movement (wi de muv)’ by award-winning artist Julianknxx , followed by a panel discussion and an afterparty sponsored by the London Migration Film Festival and Brixton Brewery, celebrating a year of LAGO and our communities.
