Cross-Cultural Connections: Sharing Manchester’s Migration Stories

 

Resource authors: Dr Liam Harte, University of Manchester

This short observational documentary film centres on Connected Communities Festival events that were organised by Dr Liam Harte in Manchester in June 2015, in association with Z-arts community centre and Rathbone England. The Festival activities consisted of six interactive workshops with young people aged 14-24 from ethnic minority or socially disadvantaged backgrounds. Each workshop usedparticipatory drama, storytelling and film as vehicles for the exploration and sharing of migration narratives centred on the city. The film captures some of the imaginative responses of the young participants to the experiences of newly arrived immigrants in Manchester at different historical moments.
