My View From Home
Mail Art Project by Jason Brown
Of all the mail art projects out there in the world, Jason Brown's "My View From Home" was the first one to inspire us the most to create our own mail art project + virtual gallery. One could almost say that The Courrier might not exist without Jason's positive influence. His was the first mail art project that all three of our founding members participated in as an institution and more importantly, as a family.

In an interview with Nashville's Channel 5 News, Jason further explains. You can view that segment here.
It is on that note that we here at The Courrier nonprofit international mail art project would like to thank Jason Brown for all that he has done, from creation to building to engaging to publishing to archiving and finally giving back above and beyond to the artists who helped make My View From Home Mail Art an important contribution to our world history. We are so humbled to have participated and to have received.

We encourage you to follow My View From Home on Instagram and to visit the website. For, as Jason says, "all you need is your imagination and a stamp."
One of the biggest driving ideals behind The Courrier was to become a platform which gives back to various relevant social and environmental causes.
