About this deal

He reflects throughout the book on the daunting task of challenging the vitriolic narratives around migration in politics.

They would seem an ideal example of the mobile life which Miller extols – and a good example, too, of how persecuted mobile populations often are. At times her writing kind of reminded me of David Abram's stuff, going off on these weird poetic tangents that lead you to visualize things in a way you might see them while using psychedelic drugs or something. In a paradox later repeated across millennia, the burgeoning city-state found in them an economic buttress and an ideological foil. Children will empathise quickly with the elegantly illustrated animal characters, each of whom have their own identity with details like clothing, colour choices and expressions.

Dr Trotter chose a study for this painting as the cover image for her book ‘The Married Widows of Cornwall ’.

It is profound, complex and moving…In a world that often answers children with shallow responses or overwhelms with explicit details this book walks between the tension. He is the author of Impossible Journeys, There and Back Again: In the Footsteps of JRR Tolkien and The Favourite. As with previous artists, we asked Ceyda and the curator in residence of the art studio, Dima Karout, a series of questions and answers to find out more about Ceyda’s artistic practice. While some children were fortunate enough to do well in their new country, for thousands of others the forced migration was a profoundly traumatic experience of family separation, neglect and abuse.The UN Human Rights Office and the mechanisms we support work on a wide range of human rights topics. Halfway up the high street in Totnes, a small town on the river Dart in Devon, a modest stone is set into the edge of the road. This powerful portrait — stark, eloquent, and utterly devoid of sentimentality — depicts the arduous, dangerous journeys of migrants all across the globe. Miller himself knows identity’s appurtenances (genes, heritage, family and ethnic histories) are always contingent. We all have a duty, individually and collectively, to provide support, sanctuary and welcome for people of all nationalities and backgrounds displaced by the current situation – and by other conflicts and crises around the world.
