Migration Museum, Lewisham
Our EAL Department was proud to lead a group of 30 KS3 students who have recently arrived in London to this excellent immersive exhibition that shines a light on the central role that migrant entrepreneurs have played in shaping our lives – and Britain. So many of the brands and businesses that are most integral to our lives – from corner shops to tech giants – are the products of migration. Entrepreneurship has always been at the heart of the immigrant experience.
The museum has recently been redesigned into an exciting and interactive experience of the industrial and commercial life of London's multicultural migrant communities. From an Ethiopian restaurant to Brazilian music and a very realistic Chinese takeaway, the students enjoyed reading about, role playing and exploring London's immigrant business world.
