London, May 2019
Seeds is a participatory project that uses collage compositions to investigate personal identity and how resilience transforms people. The work offered participants space to discuss how migration can provide opportunities for growth and resilience.
Through art workshops, we learn how to create freely, be open to listening, and allow ourselves to be guided by the fragile materials to generate new images that will seem to emerge by themselves. We focused on the creative process and we explored through different collage techniques of construction.
By the end of the workshop, everyone was able to create various collages and participate in the collective artwork Seeds that collects diverse portraits of participants' representations of their migration experiences.
Seeds was developed at the Migration Museum in collaboration with visitors of the Room to Breathe exhibition.
