SOMETHING TO DECLARE Initiated by Cultivaters - Broadcast in Progress   Something to Declare  aims to raise awareness, help us better understand and possibly enable us to relate more to the migration 'crisis' at the moment.  Just as the image a dead Turkish child washed up on beach suddenly humanised reporting and attitudes about refugees, personal stories recounted by people around us can help us to identify and relate. Those people over there become these people over here. Ourselves and the people we know.                   This is a  collection of personal stories about moving from somewhere else to London with an emphasis on how personal stories can help us relate to and understand the wider picture with the idea that most of us do indeed have 'Something to Declare' along the line, whether it be our own, our parent's or indeed our grandparent's story.            
 The first stage, recording of a collection of personal stories local Londoners is already underway and they have been embedded into an online world map. These arrival stories already recount incredible diversity not only in where people are from but also depict many reasons for movement and arrival across different generations.  
 The second stage will be a live immersive event where participants will record their stories at an 'Arrivals Bureau'. These will be added to the map.

SOMETHING TO DECLARE
Most have arrived to live somewhere new at some point.  Many have a story to tell about that arrival and the transition from one place to another.Whether its crossing continents, borders or boroughs, through necessity or through choice, this collection of personal stories aims to shift the current national debate about migration, through the realisation that many of us do have something to declare.

 Exploring new perspectives around a live issue floating through popular culture, people's minds and current conversations without perhaps being fully considered, punctured, 'popped'. So far these open table discussions have been held at the  Book Club Shoreditch  on a Sunday afternoon where a carefully chosen group of people is invited to watch a short film montage to provoke some thought around the chosen topic, followed by two advocates who are somehow involved in the ideas being explored, they don't necessarily have opposing view points but come at the theme from different angles.  
  An audio ‘Popcast’ is then produced as a 'Social Broadcast' after each event as a synthesis of the debate. This is shared with participants and thought leaders in the relevant space. The Popcast isn't created to give any answers, on the contrary its abstract format is a call for listeners ask more questions.   So far coding, choice and personal identity have been investigated. The next P/O/P/A/G/A/N/DA explores our relationship with Data as part of the  Big Bang Data  exhibition at Somerset House           Audio and Video Production: Lucia Scazzocchio Event Production:  Dan Simmons
