As I get ready to embark on my second trip to Morocco to work with the organization Project SOAR for a Swatchroom service trip. I am taking some time to reflect on my first trip. If you want to the world to change in the future you have to start working with the current generation as it grows.
As a group of 12 artist from across the united states leave home for a duration of 10 days to work in the tiny village of Douar Ladaam. I am not one for words, so I will let the photos guide you through our trip and emotional experience.
We stayed at Peacock Pavilions. If you ever go to Morocco, you have to stay here! It is a breathtaking boutique hotel built on an olive grove by humanitarian and interior designer Maryam Montague and her architect husband Chris Redecke. It is also the home of Project SOAR.
