Finding Home

Finding Home was a publication and event I created with Jenny Luna in 2011 for Open Engagement. The publication featured interviews we conducted with eight people whose lives were deeply enmeshed in the community of Americans who perform, study, and teach Balkan folk music and dancing. We released the publication at an Open Engagement event in Portland, OR, featuring live Balkan music by a local band called Kafana Club, as well as our own. Balkan folk dances were taught and led by Susan Reagel. The event was a snapshot into the evocative power of Balkan folk music and communal dancing that captured our hearts and transformed our lives. The project was funded in part by Balkan Festivals Northwest.
