Artists: Sue Heydon with 50 others including former refugees from Burma and Nepal plus staff and others

This project involves the artist working with a group of former refugees attending an English as a second language class at Victory School who come from Myanmar (Burma), and from Nepal: Kareni (Kayan), Chin, Zomi, and Nepali ethnicity. The project will involve the construction of a village of dwellings, that are constructed from bamboo and paper that are lit like lanterns, that on one level look fairy like, but also suggest the fragility and tenuous nature of life today for many people the world over.
