This international exhibition is the result of two CCA Diversity Program courses taught by Mariella Poli, one titled ‘Multiculturalism & Identity’, an exchange with Marmara University, Faculty of Fine Art, Istanbul, Turkey and Hybrid-ism & Multi-Ethnicity an exchange with MADE Program, Accademia Belle Arti Rosario Gagliardi, Siracusa, Sicily, Italy.
 
The exhibition features the artworks from an interdisciplinary and culturally diverse group of architects/artists/designers investigating current and historical dilemmas facing new immigrants and political/religious refugees as well as their influences on local and global culture in everyday life and their complex relationship to artistic and cultural production. Each body of work represents a unique perception according to one’s individual expertise, experience, vision and culture identity.
