We Still Have Hope

My first day of school. I meet new people. 

 

It’s difficult I went to school.

 

My feel so happy but I’m crying. 

 

Going with my dad. Excited to go to class.

 

Excited the first day.

 

Amazing day.

 

New friends.

 

Doing dances songs

 

Best the school thing.

'We Still Have Hope,' 2020. Acrylics on wood. 

   8 ft. x 8 ft. Innovation Works, London, Ontario. 

Over 25 youth that migrated from Syria questioned the notions of home and belonging. Through storytelling, theatre, visual arts and food sharing, young adults explored their story of migration. This project also created a space for participants to process tensions between the indigenous and muslim communities sparked by the media. This led to deeper reflections about displacement and war on indigenous land while also acknowledging the privileges of receiving asylum and refuge by the government of Canada. This mural available for tours around London.
