Migrant Voice is delighted to invite you to its third annual conference, initiating an inclusive debate on migration, examining public attitude and media representation of migrants, and raising alternative voices and messages.
A highlight of day one will be the Migrant Voice ‘Question Time’ session, chaired by Jackie Long, Social Affairs Editor, Channel 4 News. Panellists from the media, academics, activists and politicians, will discuss the current migration issues and the state of the debate as well as the media coverage of migrants. Panellists include Jean Lambert, MEP for the Green Party, David Goodheart, journalist, author, and Director of the thinktank Demos, Dr. Jairo Lugo-Ocando, Department of journalism studies, Sheffield University and Rita Chada, Refugee and Migrant Forum of East London. This will be followed by a summation of the ‘Question Time’ session by Bridget Anderson, Professor of Migration and Citizenship and Deputy Director at COMPAS, Oxford University.
Day one will also feature a messaging workshop and a ‘mash-up session presenting creative and inspiring communication projects and a networking reception.
Day two will engage members of the Migrant Voices for Change Network in hands-on media training by journalists from the Evening Standard and the BBC, as well as activities and facilitated discussions on building the Migrant Voice movement and its strategies and messaging.
The conference will launch Migrant Voice’s photo exhibition ‘A picture is worth a thousand words.’
The conference will engage members of our networks in London, Birmingham and Glasgow with other migrants, the media, academics and the public to exchange learning, to engage in an inclusive debate and develop alternative and positive media messages on migration.
