Dialogue & Events Dialogue is at the heart of what we do at Migration Matters.

Impactful videos and educational resources can only go so far in changing the migration debate - we need meaningful exchanges that can shift perceptions and encourage nuanced dialogue. To this end, we collaborate with partners in a variety of fields so that our resources can enhance workshops, conferences, and programs that bring together diverse groups to share, learn, and connect on migration topics. Whether in a face-to-face or digital setting, our resources are crafted to spark interest and support understanding and dialogue. Our team also actively organizes and leads workshops, film screenings, and discussion events, offering direct engagement opportunities with and around our content.
