‘Constructing Homelands’ looks at how ethnography and art interventions, especially visual storytelling, can together inform a participatory and gender-responsive policy framework. Through collaborations with migrant women in informal sectors in the state of Sikkim, the project will attempt to provide a multi-perspective insight into their lives. And through this, initiate conversations between them and relevant stakeholders to create a more empathetic and inclusive approach to policy formation. Constructing Homelands is about exploring collaborative and non-hierarchical ways of representation, bridging the gap between research and practice and allowing new imaginations and alliances to occur in unexpected spaces and situations.
