The human story has always been one of migration, journeying across seas and continents to find work, water, food, comfort and joy … all part of aspiring to a better life. Yet even now many of these movements of populations remain hidden.
Join Caribbean writers Olive Senior and Dorothea Smartt, Serbian writer and poet Vesna Goldsworthy and photographer and TV presenter Johny Pitts to discover the most surprising tales of individuals and communities moving to change their world, and who, in doing so, also transformed their destinations. Chaired by Barbara Roche, Chair of the Migration Museum.
