Finally we ask all of our artists to send us a small text with their answer to this question: “What is home for you?”
This serves as a way for ASTRO artist participants like yourself to share their view of home/migration/geographical dislocation in solidarity with those seeking a home, or thinking about home, when they come looking at your projects on the website.
