Everybody has a story. That is the premise of this series of short vignettes, featuring the words of 25 people who have moved to the UK from another country at some point in their life. Some arrived as children and others as adults. Some moved here to work or study while others came seeking sanctuary from injustice at home. The aim is simply to celebrate the rich and fascinating diversity of people living in the UK and to offer a small window into their lives.
Four of these portraits and stories are being exhibited at Manchester’s People’s History Museum, as part of a year of programming around the theme of migration. The book can be viewed free of charge here.
