The overriding principle of “One House” is the vision for a country where we are united as one rather than divided; the artists aim to universalize this message by bringing it to a very personal level. In a Workshop on November 18th, participants will be able to make their own ancestor panel and have it added to the installation. Read more about the project by clicking here!
