About The Moth Migration Project
The Moth Migration Project founded by Hilary Lorenz, 2016, is a crowd-sourced collection of hand printed, drawn and cut paper moths exhibited in multi-sensory installation. Choosing moths, a nocturnal pollinator, as the vehicle for cross-pollination and international exchange, I invite people to create paper moths native to your geographic location. The moths become a symbol of the global network currently with over 15,000 submissions from 26 countries. The MMP creates a spirit more significant than any single community by fostering authentic connections and engaging public participation through a synergy of shared experience and embracing mutual respect for personal uniqueness and creativity.

Each little piece of art, from countries all around the world is building bridges and links between people who would never otherwise have met.–Avril Wilkinson, Norfolk, England
