Colors of Resistance


This is a personal journey that questions the concept of belonging to a place that is struggling to survive, inside and outside its own borders. Through this trip, I try to understand how my son will relate to this hometown in which he may never live. How will he manifest his identity despite the challenges he will face when he speaks about his homeland? This issue started dominating my mind after my mother’s passing last year. I began searching for answers through conversations with people who used similar tools as my mother once did to express their identity– tools of art. As my journey progessed, I met up with social activists - mainly artists - who use their artforms to tell who they are and where they come from.
