Dear all :heavy_heart_exclamation:

:smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Just two weeks until we launch 1000 Dreams! :sparkles:

:mega: On 18 June the website will go live, the first social media posts will go out and publications will start running 1000 Dreams stories. It’s super exciting! :smiley_cat:

We want to thank you for the amazing contribution :pray: you’ve made to ensure refugee voices are heard :ear:. The easiest way to keep up to date with the launch is to :computer_mouse: join the 1000 Dreams facebook group (and invite your friends and family too :speaking_head:).

:point_right:If you’re not on facebook, set yourself a diary reminder to check out the website on 18 June :alarm_clock:: 1000dreamsproject.com. :balloon:

:sparkles:Thank you :innocent:

Dear friends and associates :sparkling_heart:

:sparkles: We need your help today! It’s an easy ask: go here and share this refugee story!

For the past year, we have been working tirelessly on our newest project, 1000 Dreams and the results are stunning! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Refugee stories have always been told by outsiders. They have often been toxic or paternalistic. :confused:

:heartpulse:1000 Dreams counters prevailing narratives by supporting refugees to tell their own stories :speaking_head: - their strengths, their challenges, their dreams - for themselves. :calendar: Over the last year, the Witness Change team led by Robin Hammond, has led a series of Storytelling workshops to train & mentor 40 refugees around Europe to document stories of the refugee experience :earth_africa:

:framed_picture: Every picture & interview in this project was done by a refugee :peace_symbol:

:loudspeaker: Now the project has launched and with your help, we will bring it to the world! Our goal is 1000 shares on social media. :computer: Visit our Facebook, our Twitter, our Instagram & share, retweet, post an Instagram story :calling:. Or even better, share the story on your own account :heavy_heart_exclamation:

By clicking here :computer_mouse:, you can download one of the stories and share it on your own Instagram account with the hashtag #1000Dreams. Join our movement :revolving_hearts:

:boom:And of course follow us on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter to see every story shared :thought_balloon:

Thank you for supporting the work of these refugee storytellers to be seen and read :innocent:. You are helping change the story :muscle:

:pushpin:P.S. Do you know others who will support refugee storytellers today? Forward them this message & encourage them to be advocates as well.
