‘Postcards to Space’ art video in honor of UNICEF
Children from around the world unite through art.
We are so thankful to our partners
For our next cultural art exchange, Projekt Postcard will join creative forces with Artist- Astronaut Nicole Stott, Bosnian Artists Edina Seleskovic and Maria Lanas and children from the United States, Bosnia, Croatia, Uganda, Japan, Russia, Germany and Pakistan will create Postcards for the Astronauts at the ISS and create a Spacesuit called Exploration.
The postcards will be collected and we will create an electronic art piece "Postcards to Space" will be created to be projected on board the International Space Station.
Patients will be crafting artwork to be displayed on a spacesuit that will be built from not only their artwork but from the collective artwork of children at cancer hospitals around the world.
ILC Dover, the contractor who makes NASA’s spacesuits will stitch the children’s painted canvasses into a beautiful spacesuit replica called EXPLORATION. This will be the fourth in a series of art spacesuits including HOPE, COURAGE, and UNITY.
The children will also be coloring spacesuit art postcards and messages to be sent to International Space Station (ISS) astronauts as part of an internationally compiled, electronic art piece.
The Spacesuit Art Project is aimed at raising global awareness of childhood cancer and promoting the healing power of art. It also provides an opportunity for young cancer patients to see their artwork orbiting the Earth and on display at the Space Center Houston visitor center and other global forums, in order to share an inspirational message of hope, courage, and unity with children and families around the world.

We are pleased to share with you information about one very special project - "Projekt Postcard".
"Projekt Postcard" is an art&culture exchange project created by Artist Maria Lanas which connected one kindergarten in Croatia with one elementary school in the United States.
For the past month DV Vladimir Nazor’s kindergarten students from Kastav, Croatia and third-grade students from Newton-Lee Elementary School in Sterling VA., have been making postcards for each other and communicating via Skype.
The collaboration between the two art classrooms and teachers has created new friendships and it has been a great experience that integrates geography, history, language, and art.
The Embassy plans to exhibit the children's work at the 2015 EU Open house Day. We hope to see you then!
