Join our international panel to explore the rich experiences of diaspora communities and the impact of migration on our collective journey.
What does it mean to be part of a diaspora?
How does migration shape our common experiences?
Join our international panel to explore the rich experiences of diaspora communities and the profound impact of migration on our collective journey. From Somali-Scots to Philippine workers, we challenge outdated views of “exotic” cultures abroad. Amplifying migrant voices, we reclaim diasporas as vibrant, diverse cultures beyond Western perspectives that dominate the media. We challenge academia’s oversight of the knowledge of colonised peoples, and propose new ways of reflecting on identity through sound and listening, opening up unexplored archives of migration, and dreaming of new futures!Book Now
