How did you make this work:
MESTA is an illustrated collection of stories and perspectives by 26 people who reflected with me on several questions about their (post)migrant identities. The publication aims to empower the participants to share their experiences and talk about their goals, visions, problems and general topics about what in their past has been left unspoken.
