Through Syrian Eyes

Showcase Instagram’s collaboration with the charity Syrisches Haus البيت السوري featuring images taken by Syrian refugees as part of #ddsa16

Solution

We hosted a 5-day exhibition at the Generator Hostel in Berlin, Mitte, using the universal language of image to tell personal and intimate stories from Syrian refugees living in Germany, to create a feeling of both empathy and hope. We used the existing exposed brick work and raw aesthetic of the venue with the addition of warm copper, dark wood and soft spotlighting to focus in on the award-winning images.

Impact

This hugely successful event attracted over 500 guests, with the opening evening including influential German political figures
