CONTAINED held a Creative Lab in the courtyard of The Story Museum in Oxford, on 16-18 September 2016, trying out our creative toolbox of imagining, fact-checking and storytelling about migration and journeys. Both child and adult visitors created their own Hero’s journey, learned about migration through Rice & Raisins, did the big migration fact-checking quiz, and listened to our very own storyteller.


The Creative Lab tried out different creative learning tools for CONTAINED Project to connect experience, research, and creative learning to create dialogues and more understanding about migration. The team of the Creative Lab consisted of: Creative Director Anja Meinhardt – Research Director Marieke van Houte – Storyteller Remco Heijmans – Music Quentin Lachapele – Audience outreach Joakim Daun – Brittany Roberts – Sarah Jane Clarke
