This event is organised in collaboration with Moneygram's Participate.Integration initiative. 

You'll also get a sneak preview of some of Migrant Voice's short films from our 'Feel at Home' project, which brought migrants and Britons together across the UK to explore what integration means to them. This project is part of the Participate.Integration initiative.

3.30-6pm: Media Lab where we’ll be creating positive messages on migration through photos and blogs to celebrate International Migrants Day (18 December). The session will be run by Migrant Voice and media experts.

6-8pm: End of year party with fun, food and funky music! Come to meet old friends and new people, and to celebrate International Migrants Day, Christmas and the end of another year. Feel free to bring some music from your country, or festive drinks/food to share.
