About Daneha

Daneha, or Seeds in English, explores the identities and stories of the Afghan community in Blacktown, underpinned by cultural and linguistic links to ancient Persia. It connects with local, national and global issues of displacement, loss, survival, resilience and the challenges of resettlement that impact the broader Persian diaspora. The seed symbolises different contexts of migration, a scattered reshaping of community across the globe, with the growing of roots in foreign, unfamiliar soil. It explores how the community regathers and grows new opportunities.
