Migrants Organise x Gate Theatre





Multi Art-form


The Gate is thrilled to partner with Migrants Organise, an award-winning, grass roots platform where migrants and refugees connect and organise for dignity and justice for all.  

New Dreams is a digital exhibition in honour of Refugee Week 2021 featuring art, podcasts, short films, and creative writing, created in a series of workshops with Migrants Organise. It is a personal and moving celebration of identity, connection, creativity, activism and voices whose stories are rarely told. 

The breakdown of work to be showcased in the exhibition is as follows: 

  • Artist Tish Kester and the Migrants Organise Women’s Group explore their creativity through paintings and accompanying podcasts
  • Gate Alumni Artist Tyrell Williams explores the medium of film with a group of Migrants Organise members who are currently navigating the immigration/asylum system
  • Writer and poet JJ Bola inspires and supports the Migrants Organise Creative Writing Group to present a series of short writing pieces 

Watch this space for more detail on the art featured in the exhibition and for information on how to experience New Dreams online from 16 June.
