Identity on the Line

Identity on the Line is a large-scale cooperation project, financed by Creative Europe aiming to explore the long-term consequences of different migration processes which took place in Europe over the last 100 years. Six cultural history museums and one university are working together for four years, starting in 2019. Would you like to contact us? Please email us at


Identity on the Line (I-ON) will explore how experiences of migration have influenced the informants’ identities in different ways in order to evoke the hope and potential for fellowship which the fluidity of identity may entail.  Our priority is to reinforce the sense of belonging to a common European space to contemporary migrants, to those who have settled and their hosting communities.

Who we are

The project is a broad cooperation between partner institutions in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, Slovenia and Croatia. Starting with similar approaches and using the same methods, each museum will work on one important migration process in its country by collecting and facilitating sensitive narratives in local exhibitions and uncovering challenges which have not been addressed before. The main findings and common features will be summarized and made available as a joint travel exhibition within Europe and a digital package for education.
