Road of Change | I wish I was my own country so I could be home anywhere

During the ‘Road of Change’ project, fifteen young people spent their spring half-term break travelling along the borders of Europe to meet refugees. 

During a mini-workshop, they collaborated on the creation of personal flags, the results of which can now be seen in the entrance hall of S.M.A.K. The refugees were asked to name three core values that they consider important in life and to associate them with a colour and shape. Afterwards, they composed individual flags using a combination of these colours. Graphic artist Edouard Schneider used the sketches as a starting point for the final designs, which represent universal themes such as love, peace, compassion, family, education and home.

  • The initiative was organised by Flemish Refugee Action (Vluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen).
