A note from the artist.
“The imagery for the 2019 Action for Education came from the phrase ’to give a helping hand'. Hands are a symbol universally of connection, friendship and assistance. Each image of a hand mimics an action you can do to assist fundraising for education in Chios.
We arrived at this concept after sketching and brainstorming imagery that would feel personal while retaining a sense of community and solidarity. The imagery of hands kept coming up again and again in the initial sketches. We wanted a system that would remain consistent for the actions. From this arose the idea of one hand representing the many different actions that can be taken.”
