© 2018 by Focus on Identity International group of artists - Design by: Eleni Zevgaridou

Focus on Identity logo
An international artist collective comprising nineteen artists from twelve countries. Our work addresses concepts of identity and belonging. 

The Focus on Identity Project is a creative cooperative bringing together artists from around the world who are working on themes of Identity, Sense of Place and Personal Discovery.

 

The common threads within all the works shown are intellectual and artistic curiosity and a thirst for making sense of who we are and the context in which we find ourselves. As well as that, I was hoping to gather people together who would support each other, and who would be willing to create together. 

 

This diverse group of makers was selected from a large number of submissions to an international call.
