UNBOUND GLOBAL is now live!

We have launched UNBOUND  ??? ???? www.unboundglobal.net an interactive digital project created  by artist Rachel Gadsden, filmmaker Abigail Norris, digital anthropologist Kat Braybrooke with support from The SPACE which asks diverse communities in the Middle East and UK to communicate senses of cultural identity through shared creative practice. 
We would be most grateful if you would be able to share our call out with your audience - we are specifically hoping to unite diverse and disabled communities as well as inviting main stream audience from around the Globe.
The heart of UNBOUND is simple: Draw an image of “who you are” and submit it with with your name, location, and a photo of you being creative. All submissions will then be featured globally online. Here and here are two examples of the kinds of work we've received so far, created by Zahra Al-Daman, a blind graduate student and sculptor at Riyadh University in Saudi Arabia. 
And now for our humble ask. Because we are looking for a diverse body of submissions from people of all kinds of different backgrounds, like Zahra, we need community leaders like yourself to help us get started. Please take a moment today to sketch out a portrait - and ask your students, family and friends to do the same. Submit work to http://unboundglobal.net/submitwork or to the hashtag #UNBOUNDGLOBAL so we can feature it.
We'll see you there... and thank you, from the bottoms of our hearts, in advance!
- Rachel,  Abigail and Kat
For Middle Eastern friends, here is an Arabic translation.
