Community Mosaics

This is the the newest Community Mosaic Project I directed in 2022. It’s about Climate Change and was made by ca. 60 citizens of Beijing/China.

 

In 2014, in Turkey, my friend Miriam explained the difficult situation refugee women were in, as they were not allowed to work and had little to do with their time. We both knew how time consuming making mosaics is and what impact working together on a communal project can have for peoples sense of community – this was how the Refugee Community Mosaic was born and what sparked my passion for making community mosaics with people around the world.

Since 2014 I have conducted several other community mosaic projects in Brazil and China. I gain great joy of taking on the art director role for these projects and am thrilled how working together not only provides a sense of connection, but also gives the initial design some surprising charactersistics.
