Today, I added a very special bookmark to my collection after finding it in a library book I had borrowed. It is from a series of five bookmarks from "The Refugee Bookmark Project" (launched in August 2017), a collaboration between the Community Migrant Resource Centre (CRMC) in partnership with the City of Parramatta Library in Sydney, Australia and supported by the State Library of New South Wales (SLNSW).
The overall aim of the project, which showcases the pieces of 5 refugee artists on bookmarks that were available across 7 different library sites, including the NSW state library, was to raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and the positive contributions they've made to Australian society.
A wonderful project indeed. Congratulations and well done to all involved. You can read more about the project and each of the bookmarks by clicking the CMRC and SLNSW links above.
I now aim to find the other 4 bookmarks in the series and add them to my collection.
