Design Week as a call to action
Filipinos go abroad because they have no options, but they go with a dream in their heart, a hope for the home/family that they leave behind. And as they go to bed, finally allowed to rest after a long day of caring for other people’s families in an island that is not theirs, another island takes shape in their dreams, an island where their families have all that they need, where they are home. This island of their dreams, specific yet shared, floats over the one they work in, and gives them strength to take on another day.
Long term project
