For Refugee Week 2018, Journeys Festival International invites you to MIGRATE.

MIGRATE is a Unicef NextGen exhibition presenting new photography exploring global migration by eight international photographers.

Over six days, we have a full program of events planned around this exhibition. General opening times for the exhibition will be Tuesday 19th June to Friday 22nd June 9am-5pm.

On Monday 18th June, MIGRATE will launch with a private view from 5pm. The launch will give you a unique opportunity to see the exhibition first and hear an introduction by one of the eight artists, Cyrus Mahboubian. This event will be free to attend and complimentary drinks will be served.

On Tuesday 19th June, MIGRATE will welcome artists from the project to discuss their work and invite questions from guests. This will take place from 6pm-7pm and will be free to attend. Booking is essential to ensure your place. You can book here.

On Saturday 23rd June, Leicester Lo-Fi will be running two free, hands-on workshops focusing on the art of polaroid lifts. This lo-fi craft activity will be perfect for families, groups or individuals. All ages and abilities are welcome. This will take place from 11am-2pm and will be free to attend. Booking is essential to ensure your place. You can book here.

About MIGRATE:
MIGRATE was founded in the hope of engaging fellow Londoners to have a conversation about the ongoing refugee crisis; the only rule was that the participating photographers had to use instant analogue film, which was donated by manufacturers The Impossible Project (now called Polaroid Originals). Unlike digital images, “polaroids” are physical and develop in the moment, which makes the photographer’s interaction with the subject more personal, while their small scale requires viewers to stand close and engage with the content.
