Empathising with Migration Themes through Booklet Making: Little Migration Books

According to creative practitioner, Sara Holden, who designed the workshop, “the purpose of the activity was to use creative methods to reshape preconceived thought and dialogue patterns on the concept of migration. Referencing the PERCEPTIONS migrant interviews, the Little Migration Books activity explores the project topics of faith, hope, loss, uncertainty, disorientation and invisibility through the visual arts. As a universal language that everyone can understand, visual art has the power to achieve worldwide communication and this activity connects with all. It is a non-discriminatory visual-art activity that taps into emotional and creative faculties to encourage empathy, help reset preconceived ideas and prevent unfair or prejudicial distinctions on the subject of migration.”
