Collection: Feels like home: Refugees in towns

The Refugees in Towns project (RIT) at Tufts University promotes understanding of the migrant/refugee experience by drawing on the knowledge and perspectives of refugees themselves. I invited refugee participants in the project to send me photographs of what felt like home to them – from any time and any place. I painted up to four of their images and asked them to write about those images, or about home in general.

This iteration of ‘Feels like home’ took place online in October 2020 as part of RIT's Refugee Integration Festival, and 10% of sales will go to the RIT Centre. To make an individual donation, please go to the RIT support page.

Please email me if you have queries or trouble with the site. You can see more of my work at thomascartwright.co.za.
