We came from is a transdisciplinary collaboration platform addressing the theme of migration. Migrants are at the heart of the ideas developed. Each chapter has its own form, its challenges, its collaborators. All projects are self-produced in order to keep total freedom in the reflections deployed.
Farooq is an embroiderer from Afghanistan. One day, while seeking asylum in France, he thought of embroidering the name of his native town of Kabul on a sweat-shirt. For him, this simple act translated his very need to exist, to be recognised. In doing so, he also turns upside-down the western stereotype made of mass tourism to few, major world cities.
We came from presents its first collection of sweatshirts, featuring the capital cities of the six major countries of origin of asylum seekers in France: Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), Conakry (Guinea), Dhaka (Bangladesh), Kabul (Afghanistan), Tbilisi (Georgia) and Tirana (Albania).
With your support we'll be able to acquire an embroidery machine and dream of other commited projects with more people! Support the project on kickstarter
