About the Sojourn Project The Sojourn Project has been formed in order to connect artists in Australia and Asia through collaboration, exchange and communication. Our aim is the forge international community bonds and promote the emerging and underground arts throughout the greater Australiasian region. Homeward Found is curated by Melbourne artist Facter. In his role as Director and editor of Invurt, Facter has been documenting artists, events and producing art related events for the past ten years. In this time he has acted as consultant and curator for a variety of street art and graffiti related festivals and activations, as well as continually advocating the art form to the general public. For the last five years, Facter has been living, travelling and working within Asia, where he has befriended, discovered and painted with a multitude of talented artists and creatives from a variety of disciplines. He has formed the Sojourn project as a way of educating and exposing both the Australian and Asian public to the wealth of creativity of these artists, as well as to create collaborative projects between Australian and Asian artists.
