Digital Storytelling Project  | Domestic Migrant Workers finding their Voice | London

 

 

 

Working in partnership with the Kanlungan Alliance of Filipino Organisations, this project will provide 10 Domestic Migrant Workers with Photography and Digital Storytelling training to document their experiences and create advocacy tools to challenge the issues that affect them. The participatory workshops, facilitated by Kate Watson,  will develop the photographic and digital media techniques, and skills and confidence of migrants who have experienced discrimination and abuse in their employment.

The Digital Stories produced will form part of a wider campaign to raise awareness on the urgency for the implementation of necessary legislation to ensure that the rights in the 1998 overseas domestic worker visa are restored and applied to domestic workers in diplomatic households. The work will be disseminated via a variety of online platforms and in 2015, will be exhibited by the Kanlungan Alliance to showcase the photographs and messages directly from participants, bringing their voices to the discussion and reminding MPs and public audiences of the importance of their perspectives and engagement in the the implementation of any policies or initiatives designed to improve employment conditions and legal rights for migrant workers.
