Gathering Grounds highlights the experiences of women displaced by the political confrontations in former Yugoslavia (1991-2001) by connecting over questions about coffee making and drinking. This website is a gathering space for those displaced by the conflicts to share their stories. You will find all the information you need to submit your story here.

Ana Croegaert created the project as a response to women refugees’ sadness that “No one asks us about our lives before the war,” and the younger generation’s desire to learn about their parents’ worlds. Big thanks go to Dijana Hodžić, Memo Nuhbegović, Adela Sajdel-Cerić, Dženita Vilić, and Snežana Žabić.
