Here We Make Our Home

Here We Make Our Home

By Students from Area Schools | December, 2018

Here We Make Our Home employed best practices learned through the ALMA project, tasking lead educators from each participating school to collaborate with their fellow teachers an interdisciplinary art project based unit that interpreted the exhibition’s title through the use of bird houses as a metaphorical visual element. This project aimed to create a respectful dialogue within participating schools on the immigration stories students posses through family heritage, or even personal experience. This project invited participating teachers to explore with their students the visual, poetic, and metaphoric imagery that the migratory nature of birds provides along with the idea of home and settlement which a birdhouse can represent.
