Choose Love wall with Majid Adin

Ollystudio was asked to help facilitate and guide the project for a wall that would feature the refugee artist Majid Adin.

Working with Help Refugees, the pioneering new movement in humanitarian aid that has managed over 30,000 volunteers on more that 80 projects, and Unfinished Animals, the wall was designed and painted by Majid to help promote Refugee Week using the Choose Love rhetoric created exclusively by Katharine Hamnett for Help Refugees. Iranian refugee Majid Adin’s who’s story of escape from The Jungle in Calais is now one of legend was asked to portray his vision of the message Choose Love on the giant wall in Hanbury Street in East London. The wall was also the focus of community collaborations with local schools and charity organisations as they were invited to help complete the week long project.
