The #TearAwayWalls social justice campaign made waves on social media this past March when Alan Cumming shared a photo on his Instagram. Now the project is coming to Orlando from April 22-24 to do a series of photographs with Orlando residents.
#TearAwayWalls is a collaborative project between Steven Trumon (Instagram), Chad Wagner (Instagram), and Noël Jacoboni (Instagram), to raise awareness and to challenge people to tear away walls and replace them with love and acceptance of differences.
The three artists are looking to find people connected to the following movements:
- Gun Control
- Black Lives Matter
- Body Positivity/Mental Wellness
- Women’s Rights
If you are intrested in getting involved, or know of someone that could help the movement, please contact Noël Jacoboni at [email protected]. You are asked to include words or phrases that “strike a cord in you.” You will be contacted once your session has been scheduled.
Below is a message from the creators of the project:
“Find empowerment in the words they call you. In these chaotic times it’s easy to lose grasp of hope for this troubled country.
Yet if we open our hearts and our minds to the lush array of souls and energy that surround us every day we can find common ground. And if we advocate others to try their best to learn just one positive thing about that person who may seem so alien on the surface, perhaps we all will discover that beneath the masks that we hide behind are actually more similarities than differences. And one by one, may we shed these words of hate that are spawned by fear of the unknown. #TearAwayWalls”
