About Hiraeth Magazine:

Hiraeth is a Welsh word for which there is no English translation, but it refers to a ‘longing for a home that no longer exists or that never was.’ Hiraeth Magazine was created by a group of artists and writers based in Amsterdam, all migrants themselves, who began with a goal to use the literary and visual arts to combat the xenophobia spreading across their countries, and the world. Our goal is to connect people across communities with real stories of migration because the quest for home is a universal feeling and right.

We often associate migration with those escaping turmoil; seeking refuge, but humans have been migrating for thousands of years in search of food and shelter. Modern migration comes in many forms. Whether it be for work, love, adventure, or refuge, we are always seeking home. Home is a feeling that we can’t quite explain, yet are always trying to find or create. We intend to explore this theme through storytelling and art. So- welcome! Read or listen to our stories, and submit your own. Join us on this journey.
