The concept behind the campaign in Kosovo is simple. Young people make up the majority of Kosovo’s population, but lack opportunities to make themselves heard and bring about positive change within their communities make them invisible. This campaign aims to ‘make the invisible majority visible’ by placing portraits of young people from all ethnic groups and both rural and urban centres and in many public spaces that turns them into open public galleries.
Youth are both the subjects and the actors of this project, depicting themselves the way they want to be seen, all of them carrying a personal message despite the anonymity of their portrait. Dropping the passive image too often attributed to them, young people all over the country have made this project possible being involved from start to finish and being the only visible faces of the campaign.
The idea is to have youth and the general public confront these images on a regular basis and start thinking about their perceptions of youth in society but also about the issues they face and solutions that can be found.
