The Global Migration Collective was established in 2005 it is an ongoing collaboration between artist Anthony Haughey and migrants from all over the world, many arrived in Ireland as asylum seekers and refugees from 1999 onwards. In response Ireland’s government set up Direct Provision Centre’s where asylum seekers are held indefinitely during the process of negotiating citizenship. Asylum claims are supposed to be processed in a timely manner, however, many families have lived in direct provision for more than ten-years. We have collaborated to produce public art interventions, video installations, photographs, texts, performances and public talks, in Ireland, Europe and N. Africa. These transformative actions set out to dispel myths and reductive stereotyping surrounding transnational migration. The founding members of the collective are Lauretta Igbosonu and Warsame Ali Garare.
