Following the meeting and Webinar, Globalnet21 together with the Migration Museum Project plans to record a number of Digital Stories partly on audio but some on video that tells the stories of the experiences of Migrants in the UK.
So if you are a migrant, you know migrants who would like to be involved or you work with the migrant communities and you would like to take part, then please let us know and come along to this meeting where we will make a number of recordings.
These recordings will be used in the Migrant Museum’s work with schools to involve students in the history of migration in the UK and the experiences of migrants themselves.

The UK is an Island of Migrants from our very early days and it has helped to create a rich and diverse fabric to our society. The story of that history is an important one for us all as it is part of our rich heritage.
The museum will be an enquiry into who we are, where we came from and where we are going. Britons at home and abroad have a shared cultural history and an exciting future. The Museum aims to represent the thrilling tales, the emotion and the history that have gone into shaping our national fabric.
