is defined as the choice of roads taken to get to a place, while
is the origin, a source of growth, vitality, and existence.
ROUTE [ro̅o̅t] and ROOT, when articulated without context, can hardly be told apart. The speaker may be referring to the road, or to the point of origin, or both. Certain stories have such qualities – these are the stories we would like to tell.
what is ROUTE PROJECTS ?
ROUTE PROJECTS is a platform for written, visual, and audiovisual media that aims to affect social perceptions and discourse through its body of work. We are here to publish creative and original productions as well as exhibit existing material that have been curated according to our goals.
These works are meant to shed new light on stories of MOVEMENT + CHANGE.
Our main source of inspiration are the migrants and the many other stories of the fleeting, the seemingly inconsequential, and the voiceless.
RP aims to re-tell the countless stories of migration, and at the same time, to let the migrants themselves express their sense of identity. With these collected stories, we aim not only to reveal the unseen, but also to weave a tapestry that could both REPRESENT and GIVE SHAPE to the collective memory of people in the diaspora.
Because we believe that they are stories that need to be told, and because they deserve to be heard over and over again.
