CArtREfugee – Card Design Competition 2024

中文


Background

There are 14,000 refugees and asylum seekers in Hong Kong. They become refugees for many reasons, including war, oppression, natural disasters, and climate change. Refugees and asylum seekers are ineligible to work and are forced to live solely depend on support from government and NGOs. For example, HKD1,200 ParknShop grocery shopping credits and HKD1,500 rental allowance are provided by the government per person per month. It is already difficult to leave one’s homeland and live in Hong Kong with minimal allowance. Refugees and asylum-seekers have great needs in terms of body, mind and spirit.
We would like to dedicate our CArtREfugee Greeting Card Design Competition 2024 to refugees and asylums seekers living among us in Hong Kong. All artists and designers are invited to submit a creative design under the theme of ‘Love In Action’.
Winners’ designs will be exhibited and printed as greeting cards. All money raised will be contributed to support refugee and asylum seekers ministries organized by Youth Global Network – EYGD.
