Through Project Return World (PRW) We're spreading the word for cultural tolerance and understanding.
With many terrible news around the world this year with shootings in Kenya, a massacre in Nigeria, bombs in Beirut and the attack in Paris (which are only segments of the pain caused around the world reported to us through the media), we can only keep uncovering the world with more connections, bro hugs and kanpai's of mutual respect.
Here in Japan, hate speech was seen spreading against the half million ethnic Koreans in the country, even against children in front of a school in Kyoto.. I mean, what the hell. And stuff like that just makes us even more driven to share some of that respect and understanding which we ourselves were blessed with the opportunity to nurture.
BUT not all is bad news with LGBT rights picking up speed in the U.S. and Shibuya becoming the first local government to recognise same sex partnerships!
So our project may only serve as a small symbol, and though there's been much hiatus for this project since the shirts got lost on the way to Accra from Marseille, we're excited than ever to share these expressions of cultures as the shoots unfold.
