NEAR NEIGHBOURS Projects

Near Neghbours Project will run continuously for 4 months , will include various art activities involving various groups of migrants. The idea is to bring together people of different ethnicities, beliefs and backgrounds. We want to invite people to participate in workshops, talks and an exhibition by bringing their own photographs and documents. All the participants will be invited for gatherings throughout the project where they will  engage with discussions and be able to exchange their experiences based on migration, settlement and integration in the UK.

Throughout the project we will organize workshops of photography, mapping and creative writing, after which all the participants will be invited to write about their experiences and take photographs in their neighborhoods. One of the main purposes of our gatherings and workshops is to encourage migrants to work together and be able to capture their experiences, memories and emotions, along with raising mutual understanding. This will help to create a support network, and provide an opportunity to work together in local neighborhoods, also instigate sense of pride and belonging.

‘Exposure’ exhibition 

An Exhibition of Photographs produced by participants of Some Cities’  workshops with migrant and refugee communities.  Since 2012 Some cities has delivered analogue and digital photography workshops, in collaboration with ASIRT, St Chads Sanctuary, Celebrating Sanctuary, BARA and Birmingham Opera Company. The Exhibition will evolve with new images and comments collected at upcoming workshops with refugees  and migrants from Eastern European community sharing their experiences of Migration and Transition. Exhibition will continue to  evolve with new images and texts as visitors interact with the exhibition.

Photography Workshop 

Some Cities facilitators will guide participants to explore their experience of the city, bring any camera from a Phone to SLR. Creative writing, Archive and Mapping day. Create a written response to the images of your own experiences or bring your images to the gallery During ‘exposures’ we will be working with Humboldt University, who is currently researching into UK’s Eastern European migration. The University will then collect all the photographs, documents and artifacts for their research purposes.

In August we are aiming to work with migrant women, where artist Malgorzata Dawidek will organize workshops and conduct interviews with refugee and migrant women. Those meeting will create a base for her new piece, which will be incorporated into a video and an exhibition.
