Youth and Migration Celebration in Liverpool

11 June, 2007 Liverpool is celebrating their participation in YAM2008

Merseyside Maritime Museum, Albert Dock, Liverpool

National Museums Liverpool and the Liverpool Culture Company are celebrating the contributions of 5 Liverpool schools ( Kensington Infants, Juniors,Broadgreen Primary and High and St. Anne's ) to the Youth and Migration project,  initiated by the Norwegian Emigration Centre and supported by Stavanger 2008. The project aims to promote tolerance among young people and to tackle  racism by examining the rich migrations histories of 14 European counties including Norway, Iceland, Germany, N.Ireland, Slovenia, Croatia and Portugal.


Participants from these countries will draw from their personal, family or schools histories to produce creative work which will be become part of a touring exhibition Moving Europeans, firstly shown in Stavanger  in 2008. There is also going to be a website dedicated to histories of migration in and out of Europe and it is also anticipated that young people may take part in the camp of tolerance in Stavanger in 2008.


The films will be on show in the 1st floor of the Merseyside Maritime Museum throughout the summer and until October 2007 and will be used for any relevant events and programmes at National Museums Liverpool.
