Migration Jam is a social enterprise that empowers mindsets to change internal and external adopted stories. Our vision is for a world in which refugees are empowered from within. The purpose of our social enterprise is to build the agency of refugees through a series of global events and social media campaigns.

Vision

The influence of social media is indubitable—it reaches anyone with an Internet connection, no matter their geographic location or socioeconomic status. To steer the migration narrative into a positive direction, it’s crucial to harness this powerful tool to communicate creatively the positive attributes of refugees. Most of the migration related events, videos, campaigns like social experiments, short films, and even parody often generate empathy towards refugees to tackle xenophobia and stimulate a feeling of familiarity to humanise refugees. The strategy of generating empathy hasn’t shown remarkable success in aiding integration and because of that, Migration Jam aims to utilize positive storytelling to contribute to local integration.

Event Schedule

Migration Jam talks will run from 09:00 to 17:30 and a band will perform from 6PM-8PM. Times,speakers, and topics are subject to change, please refer to the website for the most up-to-date information
