A Child’s Garden

We believe that a vibrant grassroots, democratic, civically-engaged community provides the best conditions for growth for the most beautiful flowers, our children.

Voices of Children in Iran wanted to visually represent this idea as a contribution to the 12/12 Arts United for Iran event. We hope it will serve as a message of worldwide solidarity with the children of Iran.

The flowers included in the composition were contributed by people, younger and older, all over the world, who wanted the children in Iran to know that we are thinking of you, all of you, and you are much loved. The poem that appears in the poster is also an original contribution by the author, written expressly for this project.

Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, we were unable to include all of the flowers that were submitted for this effort in the poster itself. We include additional submissions below.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who submitted a flower or poetry to this effort – with every flower received, more warmth blossomed in our hearts. We only hope that we have done justice to your efforts.
