Arriving is an interdisciplinary research project that incorporated audiovisual and interactive technology to capture and disseminate multigenerational narratives surrounding movement, migration, and arriving at a new place. Employing co-creation and storytelling techniques, conversations and interactions between younger and older generations centered around personal objects related to arriving were documented in audio recordings and portrait photographs and shared in public gallery exhibitions along with an interactive, online e-book. This article reflects on the creative process in designing the Arriving project and, subsequently, the construction of a digital storybook, which has been distributed nationally and internationally as a tool to foster two-way integration in international communities.
