ROOM TO BREATHE
The art studio is one of the seven rooms inside Room to Breathe exhibition, it is a space to host a different artist every month. Each artist made this studio their own, creating art and sharing with the public fragments of the journey they made across many borders.
Through meet-the-artist sessions, educational workshops and participatory artwork, the artists have shared their knowledge and stories with everyone who stepped into their universe.
