    The INEE (Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies) and IRC (International Rescue Committee) both contributed to the inspiration, research and development of this project.

    Because of the refugee crisis in Iraq, millions of children lack the tools to elevate their educational experience. There is also a need to remedy the effects of trauma and regain a sense of identity and belonging. This project focuses on the Iraqi refugee community in Jordan.

    Tessera is a puzzle/game designed to stimulate problem solving skills, encourage dialogue/communication and reestablish a sense of identity and place. The design allows the product itself to be produced using local manufacturing resources and materials.

    Tessera is intended to create a ripple effect. This effect will begin with the Iraqi refugee children and stretch to the immigrant and host families as well as the community at large.

    The next steps of this product would involve implementation in different refugee settings in need of the similar solutions. In new settings, the project would re-address issues of language, material and manufacturing processes.

    Mytype-1_132_

    typotherapy+design, Keep Six Contemporary Gallery and the Festival of
    Architecture and Design invite you to

    MyType: An exhibit of limited-edition, new modernist posters by graphic design genius Noel Nanton.

    Exhibition dates: May 2 - May 18th. 2008

    Keep Six Contemporary Gallery - 938 Bathurst Street, Toronto, Canada

    Featuring new fonts designed by typotherapy, eye-popping popsicle colours, bold abstract shapes, and a very new take on classic modernist typography.

    Starting with the premise that typefaces are as expressive as the words they form, typotherapy has created a series of large-format posters that explore the relationship between positive and negative space. Letters speak, and if you remove them from the constraints of sentences and even words, they have a language of their own.

    MyType uses the craft of typography to find new ways of speaking
    using fonts famous and unknown including Helvetica, Avant Garde and
    typotherapy creations like Tomeri and VWmobile.

    Are you ever thinking that your pray is nothing and not to be answered? oh my.. stop thinking like that anymore because you know Allah know everything and anything about us and about all..

    Ya Allah i can just only praying for You

    I asked for strength and Allah gave me difficulties to make me strong I asked for wisdom and Allah gave me problems to solve I asked for prosperity and Allah gave me brawn and brains to work I asked for courage and Allah gave me dangers to overcome I asked for patience and Allah placed me in situations where I was forced to wait I asked for love and Allah gave me troubled people to help I asked for favors and Allah gave me opportunities I received nothing I wanted but I received everything I needed

    AND FINALLY MY PRAYER HAS BEEN ANSWERED

    We, members of community from various sectors, support sustainable development and the philosophy of harmony with nature;

    We realize that threat of global warming that leads to climate change with potential devastating impacts on humans, and even predicted to create 200 millions climate refugees;

    We are confident that the Indonesian Archipelago (Nusantara) heritage of wisdom, which deems the earth, water and air with the Earth’s inhabitants as sacred, is a national and world resource to combat climate change;

    We see that one of the Indonesia heritage of wisdom is Trihitakarana philosophy from Bali that governs a harmonious relationship of human being with God, human being with another human being, and human being with nature – this can be a basis for sustainable development; and one of the practical implementations of Trihitakarana is the Nyepi or Silent Day conducted for 24 hours in Bali;

    We estimate that during Nyepi, the CO2 emission reduction in Bali is at the minimum of 20 thousands tons because motor cycles, cars and airplanes cease to operate; And the National Electricity can save at least 3 billion rupiahs at that day.

    We hope this idea is a contribution towards green house gas emission reduction post 2012;

    We launch the “Bhisama Bali” (Bali Declaration) on Nyepi (Silent) Day for the Earth, with a call:

    1. For the delegates to UN Climate Change Conference agree on a Bali Roadmap that emphasizes climate justice; effectively implements the commitments of de...
