The Dream Diaries

The Dream Diaries

A new UNHCR project, The Dream Diaries, visualizes the dreams of children who have fled their homes and found a better life in Europe.

Four young ‘online creators’ have travelled over 7,000 kilometres across Europe to meet a dozen refugee and asylum-seeking children as part of a new project, in association with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, that lets the youngsters’ imagination run free.
The Netherlands. The Making of the Dream Diaries

For 16 days, Humans of Amsterdam photographer Debra Barraud and her colleague Benjamin Heertje, graphic designer Annegien Schilling and filmmaker Kris Pouw journeyed through five European countries to capture the dreams of children who have fled war and persecution in Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia and beyond. The result is 'The Dream Diaries'.
