Join our European exchange and connect across the continent


From NoVember 2020 – OCTOBER 2021
Amateo invites citizens from across Europe to take part and connect, through the creative exchange of ‘Postcards from Home‘.
WHAT HAS MADE YOU FEEL AT HOME RECENTLY?
WE ARE INVITING PEOPLE OF ALL AGES FROM ACROSS EUROPE TO SEND THREE POSTCARDS FROM HOME

The first postcard:
‘Home is…’

Sharing what home has meant for you currently through words and images

The second postcard: ‘Home was…’

Sharing a memory of home (an image, story, smell that brings back a person or place that meant home to you) in the past

The third postcard: ‘Home will be…’

Sharing your vision of home for the future
