Papergirl is an international project initially set up by Aisha Ronniger in Berlin, 2006, as a response against the ban on Street Art. Since then, Papergirl projects throughout the world have successfuly made art directly accessible to the public in the form of gift-giving.
Papergirl is, in short ‘particpatory, analogue, non-commercial and impulsive’.
This film shows the Papergirl Norwich exhibition, distribution day and wrap party organised by Kiama Petit,
Jordan Buchmann and Emma Brough.
Kiama passed away after a brief illness on May the 11th 2012. She was an inspiration to so many people and the driving force behind this project.
An excerpt from Kiama’s reflective journal:
“A revolution is a dramatic change. We may keep changing our environments but if we don’t change our mindsets to accommodate our environments we won’t see any differences. A change of environment on the other hand can encourage a change of mindset, as introducing something new requires an open mind to perceive it. The optimist has the ability to respond to opportunities. If we take away our own responsibilities and self-support with blame and excuses we become the pessimist full of ideals, building limits and patterns, which don’t allow room for change. Here, ideals remain as ideals and there will never be satisfaction.”
This video is for her.
