I am Bird

I am Bird is a new immersive experience telling stories of migration. Equipped with their own headphones and mobile phones, audiences are transported on an adventure across the library, following the extraordinary and everyday story of a young bird migrating from West Africa to the UK.

At each station, visitors are invited to make choices leading them to miniature paper worlds and a series of clues hidden around the library, each revealing a different element of the bird’s migratory journey. This interactive and personal experience invites audiences to explore their local library in a new and exciting way and reflect on migration through stories and art.
