It is less about the statements and more about the questions. Present in the moment, while asking where we are heading.

One in which the “other” is not being categorized under binary frameworks, described with oppositional structures, but rather seen as part of regenerative, perpetual conversation. Projects which aren’t afraid of encountering differences and being repositioned by it. Can we help each other to find a place of belonging, connecting through a shared space and shared moment?
