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.
The thousands of faces in Caritas’ collage are those of migrants, refugees, Caritas staff and supporters, of ordinary people from all over the world. Together as a real-life giant collage, the faces form the image of a woman named Nasrin. She works with Caritas Bangladesh, caring for Rohingya children in the refugee camps they call home.
There’s a digital version of the collage – you can paste in faces which mean something special as part of an artistic action or event.
