Perceptions of Refugees

Shadow art 1

Great outdoor action from Amsterdam. This shadow art was made for World Refugee Day on June 20, 2013, and was shown at various locations in the city.

The idea behind the campaign is about invisibility of refugees. We don’t know their faces and their background. What we do know is that they need help.

The copy that was placed next to the visual: “There are over 40 million lives hidden today, living as shadows suppressed by war and violence. We often don’t know about them. But they deserve to be seen. And helped. Support another family through Stichting Vluchteling – The Dutch Refugee Foundation”.
