But something much deeper, more fundamental, about who we are as human beings… Some of us are very vocal on the subject. Room to Breathe at the Migration Museum takes visitors on an immersive journey through a series of interconnected rooms, revealing the multi-layered experience of migrants and refugees arriving in a new country. Journalist and author Gary Younge looks at how immigration is understood in the current age and what the consequences are in terms of migration, social anxiety and democracy. It has been fully co-produced by members of our People’s Panel and Network and offers a selection of ‘top tips’ and learning from the People’s Panel and Network, as well as templates to inspire and support others in their community engagement work. Our Head of Learning and Partnerships Emily Miller introduces the Dunera display from our Departures exhibition, as part of the Jewish Museum’s Passover Object Series of talks.

The armed conflict between the rebels seeking independence and the army has caused his family to lose their farming lands and with them the means to make a living. Miller's writing style is relaxed and engaging, and he adds personal anecdotes to the historical accounts, including his own family history and his quest to understand his own DNA. It is thoughtful and possibly the best antidote to racism and hatred of all those who are “different”. These include the Norman Conquest, the Hundred Years' War close Hundred Years' War From 1337 to 1453, wars between the rulers of England and France over who controlled France.

With its stark dearth of color, seen only where necessary, and evocative imagery, the artist’s pictures make the migrant’s journey — distinct yet everyday — feel palpable. With her characters standing out starkly against the constant black backdrop, each illustration captures the determination and dignified demeanour of the travellers; yet, she leaves space for readers to do some of the interpretation themselves. Through its engaging narrative and authentic writing, it powerfully depicts the challenges and triumphs of those who embark on the migratory journey. An exhibition guide to help you get the most of Taking Care of Business when visiting with your students.

But these stories often remain hidden, like the many migrants themselves who are compelled to endure a life in the shadows of our societies, prevented from enjoying the rights and freedoms so many take for granted. But if you trace our movements over a few dozen generations, you’ll discover that, absent force majeure, people are homebodies, moving barely a few weeks’ walking distance from their birthplaces. Other cities are composed of unequal men from all sorts of spaces,’ Plato explained in Menexia, ‘and therefore their political systems are unequal… But we are all brothers born from the one mother, and we do not think we should be slaves or masters of one another. In this guest blog Olivia Bridge considers the contribution EU nationals have made to the museum sector, and what impact the UK’s withdrawal from the EU may have on the culture and heritage industries. I had an idea about the dangers, I saw news on television about the deaths in the Mediterranean and the instability and lack of work in Libya.This sets predictable limits on Miller’s work: after a certain passage of time, untold stories generally have to stay that way. The trouble with this line of argument is that there are umpteen “natural” reasons why people move about the earth.
