The Migration and Interdisciplinary Global Studies (MIGS) Research Group are hosting a cross sector workshop on the 22nd June looking at the impact of Covid-19 on communities in Greater Manchester.
The COVID-19 crisis has taken a significant toll on migrant-background communities. This workshop brings together researchers, practitioners and community members to consider the legacy of the pandemic for migrant-background communities across Greater Manchester. We hope to identify opportunities to work collectively to address key challenges.
The online workshop will feature presentations by key migrant-focused organisations: Safety4Sisters, Europia, the Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit, and Manchester City Council’s Education and Migrant Children teams. In the second half of the workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in cross-sector discussion groups exploring critical issues and opportunities for collective action.
The workshop will also feature an online exhibition of artwork produced by migrant-background children in Greater Manchester during the pandemic as part of the Micreate project.
This is the launch event for the Migration and Interdisciplinary Studies research group (MIGS). MIGS is a collective of researchers based in the Department of Sociology at Manchester Metropolitan University. We are committed to collaborating with communities, practitioners and policymakers to address critical migration-related issues, locally and globally.
This event will be hosted online via Microsoft Teams. When you register, a link to attend will be emailed to you.
