People and Places Project: Rizzhel Javier

Rizzhel Javier People and Places Project - The mission of the People + Places Project is to provide an inclusive space for communities to share stories about who they are and places they live. The People + Places Project is a an opportunity for unrepresented communities to make a unique one-of-a-kind toy that reflect who they are. Each drawing contributed to the project is transferred to fabric and sewn into a homemade toy for participants to keep. Give each one a hug to hear a story about the person and the place they live.
