Purpose

Migrate is a pioneering arts organisation that harnesses the power of creativity to help the world's most vulnerable communities.

 

With our unique approach, the humanitarian aspects of our work are engrained into the very foundations of who we are. We have pushed the traditional relationship that art and charity have had and delved deeper than the approaches from the past.

We don't simply raise funds and send them to a faceless NGO without ever knowing where the money has been spent. Instead, we work in collaboration with a network of grass roots charities across the world that we visit, volunteer with, and gain a deep understanding of their needs and how we can best help.

We are not interested in empty gestures, we committed to creating real, meaningful change.

 

Migrate was born in 2016 from a desire to help those affected by the global migrant crisis using our years of experience working in the contemporary art world. Since then we have raised over £1.5 million to expanded our work to help displaced, indigenous and homeless communities.

We have developed highly creative fundraising projects inspired by our trips to refugee camps in France and Northern Iraq, funded meals for homeless people throughout the coronavirus pandemic and fundraised for refugees fleeing Ukraine. All our work is underpinned by the belief that art has the power to change the world and improve the lives of the most vulnerable in our societes.
We keep things simple - raise money and donate it to groups who can use it most effectively and help those most in need.
