Identity on the Line is a large-scale collaborative project involving 6 cultural and historical museums in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia and Vilnius University. The aim of the project is to investigate the long-term consequences of different migration processes, both voluntary and forced, that have taken place in Europe over the last 100 years. The aim is to understand what influence migration has on the well-being and sense of identity of the people who have encountered it, and also to identify how migration affects the concept of identity. The project investigates 7 migration processes, including: soldiers and children of war, Greenlandic ethnic population in Danish society, participants in internal migration due to war, local population, emigrated multi-ethnic population and their descendants searching for their roots, mixed groups of migrants, who have lost their identity and basic human rights.
In 2022, the "Identity on the Line" project was awarded the prestigious award of the European Academy of Museums. More information about this: https://www.kf.vu.lt/naujienos/6304-2022-m-europos-muzieju-akademijos-premijos-laureatas-projektas-kurio-vienas-dalyviu-vilniaus-universitetas
