About the project

Public history is a method of historical research and presentation that involves collaboration between historians, educators and the wider public. It emphasises the importance of storytelling and personal experiences, rather than just facts and dates, to create a more inclusive and diverse understanding of history. In Voices of Migration, public history is a tool to promote intercultural understanding and inclusion for migrant youth. By collecting stories from young migrants through innovative methods such as crowdsourcing, participatory archiving, digital storytelling and interactive exhibitions the project will provide a platform for sharing personal experiences, promoting empathy, understanding and inclusivity.
