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.
