Moving People; A creative approach to refugee awareness
With over 22,690 refugee applications filed in the Netherlands in 2014 a local artistic collective (The Power of Art House) have brought to life their Guerrilla street art project “Moving People”. By 3D printing 10,010 figurines of asylum seekers the company is hoping to increase refugee awareness and empathy.
Figurines such as the ones below are modeled after real refugees and have their own unike “hashtag” which can be shared on social media sites. The figures promoting refugee awarness can be found in Amsterdam and The Hague.
