THE STORY OF A REBEL GIRL
In 2017 we started the campaign “Rebel against Skin cancer” in which we used street art and lots of loud music to start a conversation about the importance of prevention and detection of skin cancer. This year we felt the need for more rebellion and we asked 20 artists from all over the world to get inspired by the theme: Out of the Sun and Into the Dark. This is the story about a girl who is so sick of everyone complaining about how annoying sunscreen is and how it slows down their beloved tan. As a statement she starts to wear corpsepaint on her face as an alternative to sunscreen. This is her way to tell the world: “I don’t want to die for my tan!”.
Can this rebel girl teach us something about how we should take care of our precious skin?
