About I Live Here:
I LIVE HERE is a visually stunning paper documentary, in which the lives of refugees and displaced people become at once personal and universal. It is a raw and intimate journey to crises in four corners of the world: war in Chechnya, ethnic cleansing in Burma, globalization in Mexico, and AIDS in Malawi.

The voices we encounter are those of displaced women and children, told in their own words or by noted writers and artists, including Joe Sacco, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Phoebe Gloeckner, Chris Abani, and many others. Threaded throughout these accounts is Mia Kirshner's intimate travel narrative, brought vividly to life in collaboration with writer J.B. MacKinnon and designers Paul Shoebridge and Michael Simons.

Following the reception of the compilation, Kirshner founded I Live Here Projects—a space to fight the silencing of victims of human rights violations. I Live Here Projects believes in the power of individual expression to transform the lives of people living in extreme poverty and isolation. Working with local partners, their projects are centered on permaculture, art and education. I Live Here's mission is to see that basic human rights are being met in the communities in which we work, in order to build sustainable futures. Coming full circle, the stories gathered are then shared through books and other media designed to encourage the global community to learn, be inspired and take action.
