During the last two weeks, our students and youth center participants developed, designed and printed T-shirts and other textiles. Different printing techniques such as screen printing, offset printing or creative bleaching were discussed in daily lessons. They could gain insight into graphic design, composition of text and the making of a „product“.
A print, a T-shirt conveys a message to the outside world. Refugee youth speak on a daily basis about their fates, their experiences and their fears. A self-made T-shirt kann express their thoughts and worries without the need for words.
The youth are wearing their personal shirts with pride almost every day. This shows the natural impulse and will for autonomy and individuality that we like to live so much.
