I am Bird

I am Bird is a new immersive experience for library spaces. 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.
