EMPOWERING REFUGEES THROUGH WORKSHOPS
In Januari I went to Lesvos, Greece, to face the problems caused by the current refugee crisis. As a maker it got me inspired to up-cycle the enormous amount of waste material that is an inevitable result of the stream of people fleeing to Europe. Together with Didi Aaslund I developed a workshop in which we empower refugees to make their own bag out of discarded rubber boats.
