Europe’s culture and creativity has been shaped by the people and cultures throughout the world and call the continent home. From trade routes across Eurasia, throughout the middle-east and Africa, to the diasporas of America and Australasia that have joined in the Postcards from Home exchange and workshops. While we’ve been less mobile over the last year, this history of global movement and exchange surrounds us, shaping our lives and local environments.
Yasmin’s work blends traditional and modern forms, which we hope can inspire your reflections on home, as we move from past to future with this new season.
