There is a creative fire inside every human being. As we have all grown older, that fire may have diminished, and some of us may have lost it completely. Many of those same individuals in our communities – and beyond – are in search of a true place to call home; not necessarily a home by birth, but one of choice. A place where art, community, and possibility are openly celebrated. A place they can know and love, while setting aside all differences and celebrating what connects us all.
“Home can be a place of solace or of despair; memories of home may come with both tears of joy, and sorrow. Homeland is intentional, inclusive, artistic: to create a space where all can share their meanings of home whether good or bad, taken for granted or elusive. Come as adults, as children, as the child you once were, or the parent you most want to be. Come as a sibling, an aunt, a stranger invited over for the holidays. Come home to sing, paint, dance, and write your way into a more compassionate place for all beings, for all nationalities, creeds, orientations, genders, and styles.” as said in a joint statement of unity with Helen Kramer, Instructor of Gender Studies at Lawrence University, Kathy Flores, LGBTQ Anti-Violence Statewide Program Manager for Diverse & Resilient, and Homeland Experience founder Cory Chisel.
