Design for Home

Home means something different to us all: It could be a whole city or a corner in a house on the edge of town. Home might be a place for restful solitude or familial gathering. It may be a place we don’t quite understand or one we’ve helped create. Maybe it no longer exists or it’s something you still hope for.

The challenge: what does “home” feel like to you?

Show us. Paint, draw, film, sing, design it. Share with us your creative expression of what it means to you.

Then, consider sharing during Part 1 of Design for Home (July 23, 6-8 pm CT). Together, we will share and learn what home means to different people here in NWA and celebrate the expressions.

Part 2 of Design for Home (July 24, 2-4pm CT) is a workshop digging into the “homes” people shared — the positive, negative, and missing voices — and use it as fuel to imagine ways we can create a space where all people in NWA feel at home.
