The world is getting a bit weird.

Everywhere we look we're being sold the dream, the next thing that will make our lives better and more efficient.

We are meant to be feeling more connected but the opposite is actually happening.

In truth, we are spending far less time properly connecting with others and forming meaningful communities. This can't be good for our health.

The idea for Show of Hope came from my own feelings of disconnection. I hope in some way it can help others feel more connected and hopeful too.

I very much look forward to seeing your creations,
