When thinking about the things in your life that make you feel at home, what do you think of? A family tradition or holiday, a specific recipe or drink, a song from the past, a symbol? When thinking about what played an instrumental part in creating who we are, looking at the culture we grew up in can provide insight into the factors that make us unique.
The people who have submitted to this gallery were asked to think of something that represents their cultural identity. Below you will see photos of amazing looking dishes, videos of beautiful songs, and photographs of important memories. You will also be able to read the significance that each of these items have on the individuals who submitted them, and how something that may seem like an everyday thing can have so much meaning behind it. That is where culture comes into play.
