Take five minutes to be part of an exciting Gloucestershire event this summer!
What does home mean to you? Is it a place, a feeling, a smell or a memory? Maybe it’s being with friends or family, or the heat of a balmy summer’s evening. Is it walking through your front door to be greeted by your pets, or walking through airport arrivals to be met by a loved one? Maybe you haven’t figured this out yet, or you have a long list of things you think of as home.
To take part, simply complete a luggage label telling us what home means to you. This could be your own thoughts and feelings, a quote, a song lyric or a drawing…absolutely anything! Feel free to add your name/location/social media handle or remain anonymous. You can also share your tag with us on Instagram @whereismyhome_ joining participants from as far afield as Japan, Kenya and Argentina.
Look out for completed labels popping up around Gloucester before the 3 August, where we aim to have 10,000 labels in Gloucester Cathedral as the backdrop to a performance of Carl Davis’ song cycle Last Train to Tomorrow by local young people, marking the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport as part of the final day of the Three Choirs Festival.
We launched the labels project at a RefuTEA party in partnership with GARAS and Project Pilgrim on 18 June in College Green, Gloucester, and raised over £200 for refugee charities! We were also very fortunate to have Michael Zorek attending, son of one of the Kindertransport refugees brought to Gloucester in 1939.
