What makes you feel like home? A person, a pet, a place, a sense of community?

The teen members of Color Squad, a Creative Action visual arts program, meditate on the question in their latest zine, This is Home: Portraits of Austin, launching March 25 at Spiderhouse Ballroom. Each artwork included in the zine is the artist’s illustration of what home means to them, and is part of a larger project Color Squad is undertaking to explore immigrant and refugee advocacy.

Join us to celebrate the work’s release, meet the artists and representatives from partner organizations, including GirlForward Austin and American Gateways, and learn more about Color Squad and the work they do.

Part of a school-year long process culminating in a mural unveiling later this spring, This is Home was produced in collaboration with GirlForward Austin, an organization dedicated to creating opportunities to young refugees. Beginning in September of 2017, Color Squad members began a period of research and community engagement to help inform the zine and future mural, meeting with experts in the field of refugee resettlement and interviewing their peers about what home means to them.

In addition to This Is Home, Color Squad will also be releasing Know Your Rights, an illustrated zine-style pamphlet that educates readers on interacting with ICE. To produce the pamphlet, members worked with nonprofit American Gateways, which provides low or no cost immigration legal services in Texas.
