As part of the Re-Place-ing theme at the Painted Bride gallery space, Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture in partnership with in•site collaborative, presents an interactive exhibition and workshop exploring how diverse communities shape, imagine, and reimagine home in Philadelphia.
Think about how you might identify what home means to you? And how then would you translate that through an abstraction or representation.
Looking at the We Went Looking for Home but We Found book and exhibition as inspiration, can you identify an icon, a recipe, or a song that captures some part of home?
Where can you imagine this being represented around the city? Events; spaces; public art; programs; etc.
How similar or different to others is your experience and notion of home?
Can you combine your idea with another's to reimagine a shared home?
What if everyone here (everyone's idea) were combined to shape a collective belonging of home here in the city? How would that work? What might it look like? Who, if anyone, should foster that conversation within the city?
Now, how might you answer this final question, how does your notion of home shape the culture of Philadelphia?
