Moving Stories

A Programmatic Grant

Telling the Stories of Immigrants and Their Migrations Through Art and Narratives 

Our work will focus on a fall 2023 small group exhibition that will feature the work of national and local artists whose work represents stories of migration. As part of this event, we will invite a few select artists to St. Louis to conduct community workshops that will help open a dialogue with different members of St. Louis' immigrant communities. These artists will also begin the collection of local migrant narratives, building a repository that will eventually facilitate the building of an app in the later stages of the project.

Timed with the exhibition, we will convene a panel that brings together experts on migration studies from the university and across the region. These events will advance the ultimate goal of creating a "migration hub" within the university and establishing WashU as a regional, and ultimately national, center for migration studies.
