25 Million Stitches
Created by artist Jennifer Kim Sohn, 25 Million Stitches is a community art installation of embroidered fabric panels by volunteers all over the world. By amassing 25 million stitches, this project brings awareness to the 25 million people across the globe who have been forced to flee their homelands as a consequence of genocide, war, poverty, natural disasters, targeted violence, and other grave threats.
How does making 25 million stitches help refugees? We believe that this project is a way for us to engage with this global crisis instead of ignoring it. And even though no single stitch can fully represent an individual, the act of stitching and the resulting work will help bring attention to the scale of the crisis.
