Migration Trail by Alison Killing
Migration Trail follows the journeys of two fictional characters: David, from Nigeria and Sarah, from Syria. Their stories are told via maps, data visualisation and social media, in real time over the course of ten days, as they set off from North Africa and Turkey, travelling over the sea, to and through Europe. It is based on true stories. You can follow their thoughts and responses along the way via their instant message feeds, either on the website or on your phone in Facebook messenger, to keep up with the story in real time, wherever you are. A podcast series explores the wider issues.
