Mapping where we are from

Updated: Mar 13, 2019

The name of this project is Stitching Exchange. I am an artist working with two groups in my area helping immigrants learn English. The Women pictured below are from the family literacy program in Hudson, NY which has been around for over 20 years. We are using sewing and other needle arts as our common language and learning to speak English along the way. The women in this picture are from Bangladesh. There are also participants from other countries including Yemen, and India. Next week I will also be working with RISSE in Albany, NY. Stay tuned for more...


Found home locations on the maps then wrote down a few details written in English and Bangla.
