Our Stories (2016), illustration

'Our Stories' was organized by GedachtenLezen, a poetry project created to connect people. The goal was to tell the stories of refugees in a creative and poetic way, giving them a human face instead of emphasizing fear and danger.
Poets and refugees came to together to collect stories and to inspire poems. I was asked to make illustrations based on three of these poems, along with two other illustrators. These were turned into A1-posters and were displayed in several venues in Utrecht, for instance in 'De Winkel van Sinkel' during the cultural sunday on May first.
