About the event

Images depicting borders, camps and policed migrants have

become a key means through which global publics come to

understand and relate to scapes of migration. Images

created by news corporations and NGOs construct migrant

bodies in particular ways. In our research relating to

migrants and migration, we have utilised a variety of visual

and creative research methods, outputs and forms of

community engagement. Through these unconventional

research approaches, we have aimed to offer depictions

that differ from mainstream media representations and to

humanise the migrant experience for a wide audience,

including migrants themselves. We argue that entangled

and live, creative methods are significant forms of research

output, methods for research creation and key strategies

for brining public attention to experiences of migration. In

this workshop we will explore arts based methods as a way

of bringing migrant experience from the margins to the

centre. Visualizing experience makes it accessible to viewers

and engages publics who can be otherwise quite difficult to

reach. We will give our research backgrounds: what worked,

what was hard, emergent critiques of method arise from

this way of working. We will also model some of the

methods we have employed when working with

communities. Please tune in on teams with a blank page and

some pens and pencils, ready to explore new methods for

research creation.
