UNHCR tents are transformed into stunning works of art by refugees.
After hearing refugees’ stories on a visit to Jordan last year, UK
artist Hannah Rose Thomas came up with the innovative idea of
recycling old UNHCR tents as a canvas for refugees to express
Around 200 refugees painted three tents on the themes of ‘Hope’,
‘Memories’ and ‘The Impact of War On Families’.
The most common image expressed by the refugees however, one that kept reoccurring, was ‘home’, highlighting the longing of many refugees for the conflict to end and to return to their lives.
The results have been so powerful that the tents are now set to be exhibited in locations across the world.
