Arts-based Research and Methods in Migration and Integration

About the workshop

This is an academic workshop about the use of arts-based and artistic methods within the field of migration and integration studies. Within the field of migration and integration, scholars have increasingly applied arts-based methods and co-creative, participatory, and artistic methodologies in their studies with migrants and refugees to create knowledge together.

The workshop provides a platform for knowledge exchange and meaningful conversation on the value of applying arts-based, practice-based and artistic research and brings together a group of interdisciplinary scholars and artists from Sweden and abroad who apply arts-based methods as varied as body mapping, Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), participatory 360-video, the use of music, photography, podcasting, theatre and comics.
