Sensing Home, Sensing Belonging
How do you know home? What gives you a feeling of belonging? What place evokes that certain resonance? Artist in Residence Tracian Meikle invites you to an exploration of home. What does it mean to lose and find home? What are the homes of our ancestors? How do their longings live in our bodies and show up as our own? How is Lagos home for you? During the afternoon, Tracian will explore the different places she has called home and invites you to do the same. Bring one item, one story, one song that breathes home. We will sit and ponder on this together.
