    "Sanctuary" presents multi-form artworks and new resources that explore the dynamics of power between the state, community, and the individual that challenge our understanding of the global resettlement process.

    Informative and demanding, this exhibition showcases artworks that provoke and raise questions surrounding the process of resettlement to Philadelphia and the dynamics of power between the state, community, and the individual. Project collaborators who resettled from Syria and Iraq joined forces with commissioned book artists Courtney Bowles and Mark Strandquist to co-create collective and individual works that reflect both resiliency and challenges navigating Philadelphia to re-establish a quality of life they had at home. These works take the experiences of challenges faced with language, culture, translation, and access to create resources; assert personal dreams; and to help inform a more supportive process for new refugees.
