We are proud to announce that New Routes, Old Roots has been invited to develop the Migration Norfolk Network, a project developed within the Museum-University Initiative Partnership and funded by the Arts Council.
The aims of the network are:
- To facilitate collaboration and capacity building between project partners and local organisations working on migration-related topics.
- To develop community-led projects about Norfolk’s migration histories.
- To share skills, knowledge, practices and experiences within and across the education and museum sectors.
- To engage the general public in Norfolk’s ‘long’ migrant heritage through public-facing projects, events, and workshops hosted by, and in collaboration with, the network partners.
In autumn 2018, the Migration Norfolk Network will host a touring exhibition of Norfolk’s Migrant Stories. An initial story-gathering event will take place during Refugee Week (June 2018). More details of the project will be announced soon.
