changing perspectives

After more than three years planning, developing and thinking about London Migration Film Festival, we decided to take a step out of our comfort zone to see how themes that we are getting familiar with - migration, identity, belonging, race, displacement - are explored in literature.

In August 2019 we will host in London our first Migration & Diaspora Literature Festival. Over the course of three days and six events, we will explore how migration and diaspora are analysed and portrayed within developing literary genres, including fiction, spoken word, graphic novels, poetry and more.

The festival will include as many participatory events as possible, to facilitate conversations on themes such as the relation between race and migration in literature, or how is it possible to write about the experiences of ‘others’.

We will release more information on the content of the festival soon. In the meantime, if you want to get involved or have questions about this new project, please email us at themigrationcollective@gmail.com
