We invite you to participate in our upcoming exhibition centred around the theme of Inside/Outside and All In Between.

Open Until: 31/05/2024

Posted: 22/04/2024

As migrants, we often find ourselves navigating between the internal journey of identity and belonging (Inside) and the external realities of settlement and integration (Outside). We have private and public selves and conflicts that arise from switching between these identities.

This exhibition invites artists working in diverse mediums such as painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, installation and digital art to explore a broad range of perspectives on what it means to navigate the boundaries of inside and outside and explore the contrasts and conflicts of experiencing (and existing in) a world that does not cater to one’s own heritage.

Inside/Outside And All In Between is the first exhibit in our new Community Space. and the first produced by our newly hired Community Curators. The exhibit will coincide with the launch of All Our Stories, the Migration Museum’s next exhibition in Lewisham, opening in September 2024.

Submission deadline: Friday 31 May 2024 (23:59)
