Myra Dracopoulos, Aged 18 – A special thank you for your contribution to NO ENTRY too. Insightful concept.
Thanks to proactive educators, The NO Project recently met with a group of high school students and young artists. 24 hours later – we received this. More to come.. Thank you to you all – and especially to the young artists, Gerasimos and Myra, who created NO ENTRY. So often we hear from students, " Another time, another place -that could be me." They are right. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to contribute in any way. We cannot do this alone.
Credit to everyone who contributed. Please see www.polarisproject.org
We are thrilled that in collaboration with the Bulgarian National Commission, artwork by THE NO PROJECT has been adapted for use in this nationwide campaign targetting THE MEN who pay for sex with [to rape] victims of commercial sexual exploitation. And full credit due to POSTBANK Bulgaria for Corporate Social Responsibility.
Some of these men pay for sex with victims of sexual exploitation.
The faces of THE MEN are replaced with words such as father, brother, son, boyfriend, colleague, husband, uncle, grandfather - you get the picture.
