From Soil, to Clay, to Home

Project Partner: The Travellers' Tree
Location: Birmingham
Programme: Part of Amal Connects 2023

From Soil, to Clay, to Home is one of the co-created projects, part of our Amal Connects programme. The project enabled people living in hostels to come together, make connections and gain access to the arts which can be a powerful tool to help overcome the trauma that displacement causes. Led by Travellers Tree artist, sophia moffa, the group looked at the meaning of home for those in a temporary state of limbo, sourced clay from the Birmingham soil, shaped it to express their own concept of home and fired their miniature clay homes in a pit.
