The Iranian artists Neda Shoaei & Soroush Ahi came up with some new ideas to make this project spread as much as possible in their region.
They created an edition of stickers with the motives from our posters and chose several spots for placing them in Tehran, like the Book City Branches, some Cafés that work with artists, and busy streets close to universities & institutions.
The stickers also show a QR code linked to an instagram account with different posts. They include quotes from famous writers about borders & migration, facts about refugees, and introduce artists who work on these issues. This is a great way to keep this project moving on to the next level and making it widespread, involving the young generation of writers and artists in Iran.
