Stories Old and New
Between 2004 and 2009, the Baring Foundation has focused its arts programme on arts organisations working with refugees and asylum seekers. In relation to this we made an exceptional grant to the Institute of Public Policy Research (ippr) to part fund an investigation into the representation of migration in museums and galleries. This was published as Stories Old and New. In response to this report, the ippr working party that commissioned it, has written a short paper called A Moving Story, advocating the creation of a specific museum on migration in the UK.
