UNHCR Launches Campaign for #Canada150: From Home to Home

In News by MIIC

UNHCR Canada is very pleased to announce their campaign for CANADA150 that they are soft-launching through social media platforms (unhcr.ca, Instagram, Facebook and twitter).

The #FromHomeToHome is a UNHCR-Canada campaign to mark the 150th Anniversary of the Confederation and to showcase the country’s long tradition of welcoming people, by asking refugees in Canada to share with UNHCR:

(a) a picture of an object representing their home country or that they took with them, and

(b) a picture of an object symbolizing their integration in Canada.

The set of photos will be accompanied by a caption, a maximum of 150 words, explaining what the objects are, their significance and where they are from (in the case of the item representing the country of origin).

UNHCR will collect a total of 150 sets of photographs to be published on UNHCR Canada’s digital networks from 1 May to 30 September. Through these images, UNHCR Canada will highlight the universal sense of belonging, with each set of images representing people’s roots, embedded both in Canada and in their country of origin.

Participants will be featured on a commemorative UNHCR poster marking Canada 150th  that UNHCR will later use to promote themselves in Canada. Submissions can be sent by uploading photos and caption at www.unhcr.ca/FromHomeToHome.
