The Common Language Project

This year we invite you into the liminal space of passages– of time, of space, of thought. What shadowy corridors have you entered or emerged from? Which voyage in your life’s journey brought you into a new age? How have you arrived where you are, and where did you arrive from? Lead us through hidden tunnels, paint portals to revelations extraordinary and mundane, beckon us beyond the next threshold to reveal the treasures that await.

Discover the winners of the Common Language Project: Passages now!
