Screening on International Women’s Day, The Migration Blanket is a new animated short which acts as a show of solidarity between girls and women in Birmingham and the Commonwealth nations, calling for a greener planet and an end to violence against women.

The film features over 200 pieces of artwork from students, activists and vulnerable girls and women based in the UK, South Asia and Africa, born from a creative collaboration led by award-winning Birmingham artist and human rights campaigner Salma Zulfiqar.

The screening will be followed by a live onstage Q&A with filmmaker Salma Zulfiqar and special guests to discuss migration, women, climate change, the identity crisis and belonging.
