Exhibition “A place to call your own”

On 28 January 2016, the opening ceremony of the exhibition “A place tocall your own” took place at the Academy of Music, Theatre and Fine Arts in Chisinau. The exhibition was organized by the CCR’s volunteers Fedrica Pulcini, Celeste Panno and Marco Residori, in collaboration with Paul Garcia (EVS volunteer at Center for Contemporary Art) and Kinga Lendeczki (freelance journalist and curator). 

The project started in June 2015 with the aim to provide asylum seekers and refugees the possibility to express how they conceive the moment of their life in the Republic of Moldova. During several meetings, the refugees talked about their impressions and experiences in the host country and through their stories, the organizers got to know not only about their life in Moldova, but also the tough and long journey that led them here.
