FOYER Issue 01: Connect

For our first issue, we explore how to connect with our mixed cultural identities. We look in-depth at how we find and forge connections from all the different cultural backgrounds which come together to make us who we are.

A preview of our first issue:

We join entrepreneur Mae Yip, one of the brains behind ERIC career platform, to investigate how her cultural heritage has influenced her business.
*
Exploring personal memoirs from Third Culture Kids, we examine feelings of homelessness and the creation of new or 'fifth' identities, and we share a TCK tool kit for beginners.
*
Fictional stories compare two breakfasts side by side, an epiphany in a shoe department, and a translator officiating a wedding in two languages.
*
Thought provoking non-fiction essays examine culture and connection through Ghanaian fairy tales, Morrocan games and carpets, Mexican and Filipino food memories, and family.
*
Powerful photo essays explore the Dutch government’s apology to Indonesians, and an emotive photo collection of important statues protected from the war in Ukraine.
*
This Issue is filled with optimism and celebrates the uniqueness in us all.
