ideas, memories and thoughts about home.
The art project showed that 'home' is as much about a physical 'place' as about relations between people.
We also got the insight that ARNA after five years of practice has become much more than

friends. So we have put up a sign for the door to the residency, it says â€“ Welcome HOME. Kerstin Jakobsson Director / ARNA

Welcome Home! Welcome home, wandering soul Welcome home! Your heart don't need to have a hole Welcome home! We love you because of what you are, a flower, a rock, a shimmering star!
Nothing matters to us, nothing is of weight,
except that we see you with love and not hate. Welcome home dear wandering child you no longer have to roam the wild. Welcome home.
