Storytelling offers a glimpse into the triumph and tragedy of individual lives affected by migration. Our authors explore the journeys people take to create new lives and opportunities. What do departure and arrival mean for those seeking a place in a distant land? What is our sense of home when it is in more than one geographical location? Do miles traveled mean more than a journey, and how do we lay our roots to make a new home?

Bercerita menawarkan sekilas tentang kemenangan dan tragedi kehidupan individu yang dipengaruhi oleh migrasi. Penulis kami akan mengeksplorasi perjalanan yang orang-orang lakukan untuk menciptakan kehidupan dan peluang baru. Apa arti keberangkatan dan kedatangan bagi mereka yang mencari tempat di negeri yang jauh? Apa arti rumah kita ketika berada di lebih dari satu lokasi geografis? Apakah bermil-mil perjalanan berarti lebih dari sekadar perjalanan dan bagaimana kita meletakkan akar kita untuk membuat rumah baru?
