In 2011, Creative Migration supported artist Zefrey Throwell as the fiscal sponsor for a contribution through Open Society Foundations Matching Gifts Program.

In his documentary "Bumi-Yorker", Zefrey Throwell explores identity questions in two of the most diverse places in the world, Malaysia and New York City. In Malaysia, it focused on what it means to be a Malaysian and the notion of Bumiputera (son of the soil). In NYC, the project tackled the eternally disputed question of what it means to be a New Yorker.

Weaving these two subjects together it draw parallels and contrasts in contemporary politics, economics and social issues, as well as investigating what it means to call a place home.
