The Migration Museum Project tells stories of movement to and from Britain in fresh and engaging ways. The museum is currently at The Workshop, an exciting temporary arts and community space near Albert Embankment. We will get a tour of the museum’s current exhibition ‘No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain.’ This exhibition explores seven turning points related to migration in Britain.The museum says of these moments that ‘…some brought people together, others moved people apart; all had a profound effect on individuals who lived through them – and on the country as a whole. Each moment is explored thematically through a combination of art, photography and personal stories.’

After the trip, you can reflect on your experience either as an individual or in a group writing exercise, eligible for publication on the departmental blog: https://globalhealthandsocialmedicine.com

 We look forward to seeing many of you on the 18th October!

Best wishes,

Priya Umachandran & Nancy Tamimi
