worldwide Banksy projection marks 3 years of conflict in Syria

withsyria#WithSyria is the name of a world wide campaign to rally support for victims of the conflict in Syria. To mark the third anniversary of the conflict, on thursday March 13th an enormous projection of one of Banksy’s arworks is projected on international landmarks around the world. Projections will be at Eiffel Tower, Nelson’s Column and in the Netherlands at the Rijks Museum in Amsterdam.

Banksy reworked his ‘Girl with a heart balloon’ for the project. The way the girl is dressed is changed into the way Syrian girls dress.

In some countries large amounts of red balloons will be released at the locations of the projections. On YouTube a video featuring Banksy, Idris Elba and alternative rock band Elbow has been released as a tribute to WithSyria.

In Amsterdam the projection will be visible on March 13th, from 19.30 for several hours.
