Considering story as a mobile form of refuge, YOU CARRY THE WORLD invited participants on a collective walk on the island of Aghios Ahillios, in the Small Prespa. Following orchard paths, we walked to the ruins of the Panagia Porfyra Monastery, and up the hill to the Cross of Saint Achilles. Considering the location as a site of ecological and spiritual refuge, and regarding how stories themselves provide shelter for lost things, bearing communal, historical, and ecological information within their codes, we exchanged our own stories that provide shelter.
