Spreading hope across the globe one postcard at time…
Using Google Street View children look up a Hope Street somewhere in the world and write a postcard to the residents.
Part drawing, part writing and part imagining life in other places, the postcard becomes a modern-day message in a bottle – with each card being photographed and placed online before being posted.
Over 1,600 postcards have been sent so far, and hundreds of responses have been received from all across the world.
This live artwork sits in the blurry gap between what is private and public information, and what is connection and community. In this workshop we create a platform for children’s voices to be heard and encourage discussion about the cyber world and social interaction.
