This chapter will look at home-making as creative work, at how home is constructed of multiple locations and accommodates multiple dimensions of the self. Departing from perceptions of refuge as a state of permanent sanctuary or home as fixed place of origin, the chapter considers critical theories of home that articulate it as something continuously made and arrived at through on-going endeavour and interaction. The chapter also considers how nostalgic intimations may be understood to enable and contribute to this work. Understanding this strand of refugees’ creative practice offers a more nuanced recognition of what constitutes refuge or ‘home’.
