Migration is Not a Crime


      This friendly little bear is a reminder that migration is a story that has been told throughout history – in real life and in fiction.

      Migration as subject can be polarising and is often framed in legal or policy terms, but at its heart are personal stories. This image and caption is the work of an anonymous street artist, found in the UK. The Migration Museum is all about uncovering these stories and challenging perceptions through immersive exhibitions and events.

      Our 'Room to Breathe' and 'Departures' exhibitions both featured some of the items that remind people of home. Marmalade wasn't mentioned but, then again, we didn't talk to any bears.
