Wherever we are in our journeys, we are enriched in dialogue with one another. In this duet between two youths, both are creating together and alone, rooted locally but connected globally in these very human modes of art, music, and dance.

postcards with heART was developed as a collaboration between the Smithsonian National Postal Museum, Jesuit Refugee Service/USA (JRS) and DC-area artists MISS CHELOVE and Michelle Chen to create opportunities for connection between those in the United States and refugees and displaced people living around the world. The 2021 program features four postcard designs, with two contributed by each artist.

JRS works to accompany, serve, and advocate the cause of refugees, that they may heal, learn, and determine their own futures. Through the JRS "Any Refugee" program, these postcards mailed to JRS/USA will be delivered to a child or young adult in one of the many refugee communities JRS serves around the globe.
