WE ARE MIGRATION MATTERS

Migration remains a divisive and politically charged issue. It is often presented in a “pro” vs. “con” framework when, in reality, topics around migration and diversity are so much more nuanced and complex. Research and evidence often fail to make it to the public and migrant and refugee voices are usually missing from the debate entirely.

Since 2016, we have produced over 150 short, accessible videos on migration and diversity to help the public have better conversations about complex issues. Our goal is always to encourage more evidence-based debate and, ultimately, to promote social cohesion and combat increasing polarization and discrimination.

If you’re interested in working with us on a production, project, or workshop, we look forward to hearing from you at team(at)migrationmatters.me. We are also available for speaking events and trainings on digital storytelling and migration.
