Postcards to Space

Inspired by the idea of artist  Maria Lanas and her “Projekt Postcard” display in the Dulles Airport, we have gathered artwork in the form of colorful space-themed postcards from over 1000 children in hospitals and schools from 9 countries around the world. Their postcard art was inspired by space exploration and gave the children the opportunity to share their messages with the international crew of astronauts and cosmonauts living in space.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Knowing we wouldn’t be able to send over 1000 paper postcards to the space station, we collected the children’s artwork electronically and our Space for Art partner A-Blok Interactive Experiences created a video compilation of their artwork and their messages of unity and the healing power of art, which is also beautifully enhanced by the original music of Alex Alvear composed specially for the video and incorporates the voices of the children. The Postcards to Space video has been shared with the crew of the ISS and will be premiered here on Earth on Nov 20, 2018 during the celebration of the UNICEF World Children’s Day events.

In honor of UNICEF World Children's Day, the "Postcards to Space" messages of unity were sent to space from children all over the world.

Special thanks to the ABlok Interactive Experiences team for bringing this project to life! And to the ISS crew of Expedtion 55 for sharing their view of the video in space with all of us down here on Earth! #space #art #healing
