Diasporic Museum

The Diasporic Museum acts as a counterpoint to the planned Migration Museum in Tilbury. While the Migration Museum at the disused Riverside Station is static and caters to migration into UK, I want the railway track to behave as an extension of that project into Tilbury. Performing rail carriages move along the track in the gaps between the Tilbury-London train. The carriages engage local audiences through exhibits and workshops that relate to the different periods of migration to the UK.
