For Siam Islam from Bangladesh, it was a big yellow suitcase in an empty bedroom in a house made of wooden poles. Waiting to leave.
For Reham Ibrahim, it was a delicate wire bicycle in a Saudi Arabian courtyard along with a game she used to play with her younger brother.
For Sinados Teklehaymanot, whose family is from Eritrea, it was the thought of her grandmother’s cosy big bed where she slept for most of her early childhood.
Ask a teenager from an immigrant or refugee family to depict, artistically, the meaning of “home” and you get all of the above vividly detailed answers and many more, now on display in a hallway at Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum at 77 Wynford Dr.
