Welcome to Another Place Like Home.
APLH is an online collaborative photography project by Andrew Jackson and commissioned by Multistory, as part of their Blast! Festival, designed to explore storytelling and notions of belonging.
It asks you to share, to its online platform stories which explore what belonging means to you - no matter where in the world you are. These stories can be told through photographs, prose, poems, essays, audio or video - you decide.
Each and every one of us, wherever we are from, and however we identify, are attempting to belong to something. Whether it be to an ideology, a place, a group or a person, belonging shapes our identities.
Yet, what does it mean to belong, in a time when identities and citizenships can be removed, in the stroke of a pen? Or when the words 'Leave' or 'Remain' can define and separate us?
Stories link us to the past and help us to imagine the future but they also help us to share our thoughts and to understand the lives of others.
We are all made from stories - our stories define us.
So, what does belonging mean to you?
