When your Caritas group has staged its creative event, share it with us. Tell us how you engaged creatively with migrants, refugees and the wider community and show off your art.
There’s a How-To Guide if you need some help and inspiration deciding what to do.
Caritas Japan began using the creative arts to promote Share the Journey back in 2018, when it made a large flag about migration. Around 200 people – Japanese and foreigners – came together in Tokyo to draw their feelings on smaller flags, which were then joined together.
In December 2019, Caritas Japan will mark the culmination of its work around “zero exclusion” with more creativity. It will collect together “wreaths of prayer” – drawings containing a prayer and images of supporters doing Share the Journey’s “reach out” gesture.
“We made 9 flags expressing our thoughts about migration and stitched them into 1 big flag”
