Reporting back on Session Two: Passagens: Migration and Environmental Change
As in the previous session, the aim was to gather different postgraduate creatives from UAL colleges for an open a discussion around migration, refugees and how art can interact with these realities. Curator and art writer Anne-Marie Melster introduced her last project to the group: a co-curated exhibition reflecting on the notions of migration and environmental change, trying to put together a series of artists that not only have migration stories in their past but who choose to work with specific communities as part of their creative process. This means not necessarily only working in refugees camps or border towns, but also groups that never completely integrated in the country they live in, have created a very close community within the country, or dealing with groups that normally migrate and travel from one country to another and how the changes in their environment influence these movements.
