Art Helps – Unhide

Art Direction

ARTHELPS is an initiative of creatives and artists that helps people from socially disadvantaged backgrounds in a very special way: with art. The latest project is called UN/HIDE. The goal is to make people and children from Iraq and their memories, dreams and hopes "visible". The children themselves express their feelings freely and playfully on paper in our workshops - and thus overcome boundaries. The result is a unique fashion collection based on the world's most famous military design: Camouflage. Creatively transformed, its no longer a pattern to hide people. It reflects the strength, courage and dreams of the children. Each hand-drawn symbol of the children represents an individual dream. The revenues, through exhibitions, promotions and sales, flow directly into new social projects.
