Our World - Phase 1

1000 tales flagship project ‘Our World’ will occur in two phases. The first phase will involve the publication of a coffee table book featuring up and coming photographers from around the world. The photographs will reflect the diversity of both our lands and its peoples. Submissions can take the form of landscape photos, portraits, photos set up by the artist or impromptu scenes. Photographs must be accompanied by a short written piece (up to 300 words) about its representation of “Our World” from the perspective of the Photographer. The sale of this book will be used to fund Phase 2 of the project which will work with Refugee Educators to capture stories and images that represent their world and relate to the lived experiences of their students. These stories will be used as literacy tools and provide much needed resources to marginalized students.

Our World - Phase 2

So, if you hadn’t figured it out already, 1000 Tales is pretty into books, books and, you guessed it, more books! In particular we want to share stories of diversity – to entertain, to engage and to help people preserve a sense of identity. We want to see books written by the people, for the people and with the people! Phase 2 of the ‘Our World’ project aims to help individuals and communities in refugee communities write their own tales…we’ll mentor them through the process and help get the works published (with the help of our 1000 Tales community of course!) so that these become resources for under-resourced schools and those with limited or no access to education, to promote literacy.
