Birds Crossing Borders (2015-16)
In response to the refugee crisis in Europe in late 2015 we developed a response in the form of a creative dialogue project rooted in compassion and trust. We commissioned 6 artists to design a ‘bird card’ that could be personalized by the sender. British members of the public wrote messages of hope and solidarity on these cards to refugees living in the camp in Calais. In February 2016 we went to the ‘Jungle’ and shared the cards with camp residents and gathered creative responses. We have since taken part in 5 exhibitions showing the work in London.
