The online articles published this Aprli in our journal, Mobilities, illustrate the inspiring diversity of mobilities research, showcasing the many ways mobilities concepts can be creatively applied and utilised in innovative research on interdisciplinary and international scales. From family mobility,  traffic noise and re-designing cities using choreography  to the exploration of how Ai Weiwei’s most recent works can be used to explore the emerging material aesthetics that open alternative dialogues on migration flows and mobilities futures, here is the summary of our April 2019 issue:
