‘Migration and the Art of Movement’

On the evening of 17 June 2016, the Oxford Migration Studies Society ‘took over’ the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford, England. The event was entitled ‘Migration and the Art of Movement’ and it featured an exciting programme based on this theme. The programme included a jazz band, theatre group performance, interactive exhibit, short video clips, and poetry supplied by the Refugee Survival Trust. One of our RST volunteers at the event said: ‘The museum take over engaged people on issues of migration in a way that emphasised the art involved in movement. The iconic Pitt Rivers museum was a fantastic place to host this event, which saw students, academics and members of the public come together to learn about different aspects of migration. A big thanks goes to the Oxford Migration Studies Society for inviting RST to be part of it.
