Building the ‘City of Refuge’ Archive

Join us for a workshop exploring how cities change after the arrival of refugees and migrants

Digital makings of the City of Refuge is a comparative project exploring the ways in which urban communities – established and new – mobilise and manage change in the city after refugee and migrant arrivals.

Building upon photographic footage and ethnographic stories across three neighbourhoods of Athens, Berlin and London, this workshop will explore the ways in which field research might be translated, transformed and re-narrated in a digital format for a public archive. City of refuge researchers, filmmakers and visual practitioners will join the branding and digital agency, TEMPLO, in this conversation.

Digital makings of the City of Refuge is led by the Department of Media and Communications, LSE, in collaboration with the Department of Sociology at the LSE, and with Proboscis and Counterpoints Arts; it is funded by the Rockefeller Foundation ‘Resilient Cities Programme’.

This event is part of Who Are We?, a cross-platform event designed and curated for Tate Exchange (Tate Modern) by Counterpoints Arts and The Open University, reflecting on identity, belonging, migration and citizenship. The programme is shaped by co-creation, co-production and exchange among artists, arts and culture organisations, audiences, activists and academics.
