Art Lab for All, 2014 Stockholm.
A record 65 million people around the world were forced to leave home last year, leaving one in every 113 people a refugee, internally displaced or seeking asylum. Of those, 21.6 million are refugees and half are children.
These people arrive to a very uncertain environment carrying with them experiences of persecution, violence, and separation, and they often enter into conflicting new dynamics in the country of reception. Art Lab for All promotes the contribution of Arts and Culture in these scenarios. By providing access to artistic means, Art Lab for All facilitates social integration and collective reflection. The activities are mainly directed toward children and young people, especially newcomers. We work with creative workshops based on drawing, photography, video, dance, and performance art. These workshops reinforce mutual empathy and caring, and contribute to a sense of belonging based on respect and solidarity.

Clothes as objects of identity. A child’s clothing as a social burden. Stereotypes and standards in the concrete forms of baby clothing, with texts, colors, and images that appear on them. The clothing used for this video is donated by friends and family of different nationalities, many with preconceived notions of gender and the child’s role printed on them. For example: trains, cars, “I don’t want to be a doctor, I want to be superhero etc.” thereby reducing a child’s identity and character to a piece of cloth. What is the need to print this social burden on a texture, in a design, a text or an image? Are blue and pink indestructible identity standards?
