15-21 June Refugee Week
The Giant Dolls’ House Project – Deadline 20 June
The Giant Dolls’ house project is an international collaborative arts project. It engages local communities and raises awareness for homelessness and refugees. The aim of the project is to make people aware of the importance of a home and community for all and to celebrate a united diversity.
In previous years the Giant Dolls’ House Project has take place in specific venues. But this year instead there is to be a Virtual Giant Dolls’ House project. The organisers are asking children of all ages and their close ones to creatively share their experience of staying in one space because of self-isolation and social distancing, and to think of the 70 million refugees around the world have also lost their freedom of movement and access to their communities.
All you are asked to do is to create a dolls’ house in a shoebox. Get creative, get inventive and use what you have to hand. You can make a box with members of their household or on your own. Along with your box, write a short story or explanation about it: what you made and why, or a thought to go with your box. Then email a photograph of your shoebox dolls’ house along with your description to the organisers. On World Refugee Day, 20 June, they will digitally combine it with all the others sent in, to create one giant global community dolls’ house. Find out more and submit your dolls’ house at The Giant Dolls’ House Project website.
The Giant Dolls’ House Project is led by architect Catja de Haas and is supported by Oxfam and the London Festival of Architecture.
Our gallery events are suitable for all, but children under-eight must be accompanied by a participating adult.
