Please join me, over the next ten-weeks, in a journey into the creative process, in conjunction with CreateSpace, which is creating opportunities for people, regardless of their arts background, to use art as the basis of self-reflection by simply taking 5 minutes out of their day to do something creative.
Join me on Facebook to share your own work and thoughts:
Each and every one of us, wherever we are, and however we identify, are attempting to belong to something. Whether it be to an ideology, a place, a group or a person, belonging shapes our identities.
Yet, what does it mean to belong, in a time when identities and citizenships can be removed, in the stroke of a pen? Or when the words 'Leave' or 'Remain' can define and separate us?
Join me in my story of belonging as I prepare to leave the land of my birth in search of another place like home.
Every story has to start somewhere. This is where mine starts.
