When you meet someone for the first time what do you do: shake hands or hug? Smile or not? For refugees and host communities meeting for the first time, this knowledge is critical.

This #givingtuesday, join us in promoting cultural understanding. Upload to your social media a photo of the face you use when meeting someone for the first time. Tag it with #thisismyfriendlyface. Nominate five friends to do the same.  

Take part our printed photo exhibition! Donate as little as £10 and we’ll print a 10cm² of your friendly face to be featured alongside during an upcoming photography workshop. If 10cm² is not big enough for you we’ll increase the print size for every additional £10 you donate!

Donations sponsor learning opportunities for refugees and locals. Each opportunity costs £60. If you and each of your nominated friends donate £10, you’ll provide a valuable experience for a displaced designer! Last year 150 opportunities were funded. Help us beat it this year.

Be sure to include your facebook, instagram, or twitter handle in the message so we know which images to print..
