The Moving Matters Traveling Workshop draws together composers, actors, artists and creative writers who have settled in several countries to explore the experience of serial migration. Do specific paths of migration create commonalities among people regardless of their place or origin or the countries where they settle? How are serial migrants different from immigrants or those who travel from place to place but hardly settle? The workshop provides a mobile gathering point across multiple locations for those who have much in common but whose paths may not otherwise cross. What is the link between migratory experiences and other experiences that shape people’s outlooks and ways of life? How does an individual partake of family histories strung across the world, or tell her story with reference to several national histories? With what aims do states, economic actors and regional configurations use differential mobility to create differences among people? We take Susan Ossman’s Moving Matters Paths of Serial Migration as a point of departure to progressively develop an artworks in art galleries, cultural centers and public spaces. In 2013 we met at the Culver Center for the Arts in Riverside, California and the Pavillon Vendome in Clichy, France..
