This exhibition stems from the AHRC Funded project Curating Development: Filipino migrants' investment in Philippine futures.
The project is based on partnerships between academic institutions and third sector organisations in and across the UK, Hong Kong and the Philippines.
The three academic partners are Goldsmiths, University of London - Mark Johnson, Principal Investigator and Gabriela Nicolescu, Research Fellow, Keele University - Deirdre McKay,
Co-Investigator and The University of Hong Kong- Maggy Lee, Co-Investigator.
Our non-academic partners are Susan Cueva and Rafael Joseph Maramag from Kanlungan, a London based charitable consortium consisting of six Filipino community organisations working for the welfare and interests of the Filipino community in Britain and Lenlen Mesina and Lucinda Pike, from Enrich, the leading Hong Kong charity promoting the economic empowerment of migrant domestic workers.
Marla Asis from the Scalabrini Migration Center in Manila is our final partner whose organisation acts as an important bridge between migrants, researchers, third sector organisations and policy makers in the Philippines in advocating for migrant rights
All are welcome to join the official opening, launch and celebration on 3rd December 4pm-7pm, to talk and share ideas about how, when and under what conditions migrant workers can contribute to development.
The exhibition is open to the public and will be running until 31st January 2018.
