Das Chirikli Collective von der Rromani Schrifstellerin Hedina Tahirović und der Künstlerin Lynn Hutchison stellt sich so vor:
Chirikli Collective was founded in January 2011 by Hedina Tahirović Sijerčić and Lynn Hutchinson Lee. Our collective is small, informal, and mobile, based in Toronto Canada, Aldekerk Germany and Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Our first projects, Canada Without Shadows and The Witness Project, inspired us to work as a collective, exploring processes, arts projects, and interdisciplinary installations intrinsic to our vision and practice of cultural identity. We participate in arts education programmes, and are developing new projects.
