Crossing Seas in Search of Identity
Posted: Friday 29th September 2023
Join the National Maritime Museum for their 'The Road to Nowhere' an interactive programme decolonising our relationship to water and looking at how our identities are as fluid as the sea.
Founder Dalia Al-Dujaili invites guest speakers and curates a workshop exploring South and South West Asian migration paths across bodies of water, asking how waterways have been exploited in the same ways as indigenous lands. They will also look at mass migrations across oceans, waterways as facilitators of cultural exchange, as both dangerous and fortuitous for migrants, and what the sea connotes for the diasporic identity.
