The instructions by Governments all over the world for people to stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic has made everyone more aware of their personal space and the value of their community. The 70 million refugees around the world have also lost their freedom of movement and access to their communities.
In the Virtual Giant Dolls’ House project, we ask children of all ages and their close ones to creatively share their experience of staying in one space because of self-isolation and social distancing.
Making a dolls’ house in a shoebox engages participants in critical thinking and craft skills. It visually demonstrates the importance of community and mutual support for all people.
