creative projects
with migART

Back to all news

migART is an open-access repository for research, activist, and teaching projects deploying creative and collaborative methods to serve migrant communities. It sets out to yield a better understanding of migration and communicate research findings in accessible and, when possible, interactive ways. migART aims to help build a community of researchers, activists, and educators who use cutting-edge methods to foster the production and dissemination of situated and diverse knowledges in migration research. The methods and approaches used in the research projects, social initiatives, and syllabi featured on migART range from participatory theatre, digital storytelling, drawing, photography, psychogeography, sonic walks, quilt making, and many more.

The website is organised into three sections – ActivismResearchTeaching – devoted to ongoing and past projects that employ creative and collaborative methods. The section People lists academics, activists, and educators whose projects are showcased on migART. The News section will be regularly updated to include information about upcoming workshops, conferences, exhibits, grant opportunities, as well as new publications and university courses.

Anyone interested in having their project, seminar or initiative showcased on migART,
should get in touch with the project coordinators via the Contact section and follow migART on twitter.
