The Archive of Migrant Memories is both a real and virtual space for stories, self-narratives and dialogues between people wishing to share their experience of migration with others interested in learning about what they went through and their feelings and reflections. AMM is a “community of practice” composed of people pursuing common goals from a variety of perspectives. Their activities range from the collection of testimonies to the production of personal narratives and life histories, from participatory audio and video production to the development of teaching materials aimed at bringing the migrants’ real life experience into schools and making them available to anyone interested.
The Archive contains self-narratives, interviews, research and theoretical reflections in the form of written texts, audio, video and images. You can consult the materials online or by writing to us for those that cannot be used on the website.
This section includes stories, self-narratives and diaries produced by migrants wishing to reflect on the nature and legacy of migration as an individual and collective
The “interviews” section documents meetings, conversations, interviews, story circles or discussions held, developed or organized by AMM’s volunteers, researchers and members. It includes brief extracts
The ‘research’ section is dedicated to research and critical literature addressing the work and activities of AMM and its development over time. It includes documents,
AMM offers workshops in schools at all levels throughout the country. Students and teachers interested in these activities can make specific requests for workshops that will be developed case by case together with AMM instructors, using the association’s materials: photographs, films, texts and drawings. AMM’s activities in schools do not take the form of traditional lessons, nor are they encounters in which participation is limited to listening to the migrants’ testimonies. They are interactive workshops where participants are encouraged to reflect on the relation between the I, the self, and the other, occasions in which the issues of antiracism, the fight against prejudice, respect for basic human rights can be worked through in practice in order to create shared spaces and to facilitate dialogue between different worlds.
You can take part in AMM’s activities by organizing screenings of our films by making applications for private or public showings, including the participation of the authors. AMM’s films provide an inside story of the experience of migration, taking advantage of the specific features of audio visual language and participatory methods.
