My Journey: Stories of London Migrants
An Interactive Exhibition
They make up 40% of the population of London, and everyone seems to be talking about them. But what do the capital’s migrants say about themselves?
My Journey showcases the work of London migrants from all over the world, who use a range of media to tell their personal stories, including experiences of immigration detention and homelessness, the triumph of settling in, and candid observations about London life.
Visitors are invited to browse comic strips, listen to audio stories, watch short films and view medium format, tintype and digital photographs produced by the group.
The exhibition coincides with the London premier of Stowaway by the critically acclaimed Analogue Theatre on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th October, which tells the story of a man from India who finds himself far from home and adrift from everything he knows (ticketed):
My Journey is run by Migrants Resource Centre and funded by City Bridge Trust.
Saturday 4th October: 10am – 5pm
Sunday 5th: 1pm – 8pm
6th – 10th: 10am – 8pm
