CREATIVE MIGRATION is a women-led, international arts organization based in Los Angeles and Bangkok.

Our mission is to advance cultural diplomacy through the three pillars of art, public engagement and sustainability. 
Our programming builds relationships and develops collaborations through three primary strands:

    • Artist Residencies & Creative Hubs
    • Site-specific Installations
    • Transmedia Projects

“Creative Migration is a visionary organization that harnesses the power of art in an interconnected world. With a focus on social practice, the work of Creative Migration builds long-term relationships that foster community impact far beyond the life of the project. Their interdisciplinary approach addresses systemic change. From examining urban planning to creating opportunities for communities to break bread, their projects are engaging, thoughtful and impactful.”

Virtual Publication              16 Days of Activism

Check out this newsletter designed by our amazing Communications Coordinator Tara!
For the next few months, Creative Migration is supporting UNDP Asia-Pacific to introduce collaborative and creative work in order to start conversations, shift perspectives and inspire action!
As the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence conclude for 2020, it’s more relevant than ever to develop creative solutions to collective trauma. Art and culture help us work through these issues in the most innovative and universal ways.

A good example is a community-driven pilot program in Bhutan (p. 22) that tackles unhealthy social norms, attitudes and behavior that lead to Gender-Based Violence (or GBV). These sessions provide a safe space for teenagers to express themselves frankly and freely, in order to work through a myriad of pressures and issues. In short, this art + social practice approach provides this new generation of future leaders the time and space to acquire new skills in order to build a life free from violence and inequality.

N-Peace Short Films             Featured Projects

Creative Migration is sharing interesting stories of women pushing back against gender inequality. This includes deconstructing societal norms like toxic masculinity that only create more polarization.

N-Peace is a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) flagship initiative founded in 2010 to commemorate a decade of UNSCR 1325 implementation via the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda. Currently unique to the Asia-Pacific region, N-Peace or “Engage for Equality, Access, Community and Empowerment” operates in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, the Philippines and Nepal, with the goal of implementing UNSCR 1325, and enhancing the role of women in conflict resolution and peacebuilding.

Accountability Lab – Nepal

Film School for Women: Training and supporting young women in filmmaking and visual storytelling on accountability and good governance issues. The team ran fellowship applications for the Gender, Peace and Accountability Edition of the school – made possible by the N-Peace grant won by the Lab in October 2019. Nepal has a progressive legal framework for the protection of women’s rights which aims to create an enabling environment for gender equality.

The Accountability Lab was founded in early 2012 as an effort to work with young people to develop new ideas for accountability, transparency and open government. It has evolved into a global network of local Accountability Labs that are finding new ways to shift societal norms, solve intractable challenges and build “unlikely networks” for change.

Period: A State of Purity depicts how nuns in Nepal are breaking past the shame placed upon them for menstruation. This stigma perpetuates violence against women. The denial of this essential part of the cycle of life, contributes to the ongoing systematic dehumanization of people born female. The more that we normalize female sexual and reproductive health, the more we evolve into an enlightened society. 

Underneath Section 193 follows two women as they build a friendship after both surviving acid-attacks. As they support each other’s healing process, they start taking on the legal system to prevent future attacks and to protect existing survivors. They make themselves visible in order to create societal change.

The following N-Peace short films align with the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls. The campaign runs every year from November 25th, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to December 10th, Human Rights Day.
