What is the Welcome Project?

The Welcome Project is a series of creative workshops and training sessions, organised by Migrant Voice and run by artists and professionals, through which we will work to explore the meaning of ‘welcome’ and create messages of welcome to migrants using photography, drama and creative writing.

We will use creative tools and explore how these can be used to express our ideas and experiences of welcome. We want to send an alternative welcoming message to migrants at a time of negative rhetoric and policies on migration.

You can find more information and a timeline of activities on this page.

Join our project if you would like to:

• Explore using photography, creative writing and drama to share our messages

• Discuss how to make society more welcoming to migrants

• Get to know new people

• Create photos, writing and other creative messages for an online exhibition

If you are interested, but haven’t joined yet, please email [email protected] if you would like more information.
