The migrant narrative in the media from neighbourhoods with high migration is dominated by the image and actions of male immigrants, of groups of men, overcrowded accommodation and illegal activities. However, migrant neighbourhoods are characterised by elements hidden to the outsider; activities happening in the domestic realm or within small communities.
The project explores outside views cast upon migrant communities which polarise dual images of us and them, of groups of men, or problem neighbourhoods. The project aims to make visible the invisible side of migration through the provision of a place of assembly for the community. It looks at creating places to reconnect, secure, empower and parent, with a focus on migrant women who will become active agents of integration, receive support for gendered violence and domestic activities.
