Call me by my name: stories from Calais and beyond

Until 20 August 2017

Migration Museum, London

Originally staged to critical acclaim in London in June 2016, four months before the demolition of the camp, this updated multimedia exhibition from the Migration Museum Project delves beneath the headlines to examine the complexity and humanity behind the Calais camp and the ongoing migration ‘crisis’. It is both a record of a complex temporary space that no longer officially exists and an exploration of the individual stories and creativity of those who temporarily inhabited it, many of whom remain in and around Calais – some sleeping rough – and continue to face an uncertain future. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands more individuals remain on the move, seeking new lives in the UK and elsewhere.
