For Refugee Week 2021, Norwich City of Sanctuary and friends are calling on local artists and creatives to join us in showing our support for refugees and asylum seekers by contributing a piece of poster art.
Together With Refugees is a new coalition, made up for more than 100 national refugee-led and grassroots groups, who believe in showing compassion to people fleeing war, persecution or violence. Together, we are calling for a better approach to supporting refugees that is kinder, fairer and more effective. It means ensuring people can live in dignity while they wait to hear if they will be granted protection. It means empowering refugees to rebuild their lives and make valuable contributions to their communities. And it means the UK working other countries to do our bit to help people who are forced to flee their homes.
Inspired by the Refugee Nation flag and the colours of a lifebelt, the orange heart has been chosen as our symbol of hope and compassion for people fleeing war, persecution or violence.
Download one of our templates as a guide to create a 2D poster heart which is A3 in size (297x420mm). Those wishing to produce their own A3 poster are encouraged to use the colour orange and/or the orange heart symbol as a focal point of their piece.
Colour Code: HEX #: ED6D38 / RGB: 237,109,56 / CMYK: 0,68,81,0 / Pantone: 4012 C
Please submit an electronic copy of your poster heart by Friday 4 June to:
[email protected] Digital files (any format), scans and photographs are accepted.
Submissions will form part of our public exhibition for Refugee Week 2021, which will be displayed on the railings of the St Peter Mancroft Church in Norwich, from 11-20th June 2021.
