Is it true that ‘you can never go home again’? Whether moving across the country or around the world, making a geographical leap changes us and how we relate to the people and places we leave behind. Our panel ponders the effects of relocation and reinvention.

Apakah benar bahwa kamu tidak akan pernah kembali pulang? Entah pindah ke luar negeri atau berkeliling dunia, perpindahan ke wilayah lain mengubah kita dan bagaimana kita berhubungan dengan orang-orang serta tempat yang telah kita tinggalkan. Panel ini menelaah dampak dari relokasi.
