Each year on June 20 the Globe comes together to honor World Refugee Day. World Refugee Day is an international day designated by the United Nations to celebrate the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their homes due to the effects of natural or human-made disasters.
Together with UNHCR we at #creativefellowship believe that creativity and art have the power to raise awareness and spread hope. Therefore, we asked young amateur artists across the World to show their artistic solidarity with those young people who found themselves in challenging life situations by sharing their vision on the resiliency and strength of everyday heroes who live amongst us. Young, displaced talents were also proactively invited to participate in the project through such educational institutions as La Sallay Academy and World Federation of Ukrainian Women Organizations. The Print@Home exhibition is curated by Petra Zublasing the industrial artist and Olympian from Italy.

Download our “Be Your Own Hero” Print@Home exhibition and install it in any public space you feel suitable for raising awareness and commencing a conversation about integrating young people starting anew in life challenging situations. Display the artworks anywhere from community centers, schools and city halls to office lobbies, cafes, and beauty salons! Help us to tell the story for those who need to be heard!
