Evocative images inspired by protest songs, many taken with Nokia Lumia 920 smartphones are being projected onto the exterior of the Tate Modern art gallery in London.
This event, on the evenings of 11-13 June, marks Nokia’s new partnership with the ONE Campaign, which works to eradicate extreme poverty around the world.
Prominent photojournalists, bloggers, amateur photographers and celebrities have taken the special images that are being projected onto the Tate Modern.
We’ve got a selection of the images here:
Alongside the Tate Modern projections, a new music-based campaign, agit8, is being launched to showcase the progress that has been made against poverty, and to amplify calls for further action.
Nokia is helping to spread word of the campaign by capturing images from around the world. People are being encouraged to share images, stories and experiences that support the theme of ‘Progress through protest.’
The ONE Campaign says that extreme poverty has been halved around the world in the last 20 years and it could be virtually eliminated altogether by 2030 – if we act now.
The agit8 campaign features new video recordings of classic protest songs and impromptu live performances. A new film will also be projected on the iconic façade of the Tate Modern.
Artists taking part in agit8, include Ed Sheeran, Mumford and Sons, Elvis Costello, Angelique Kidjo, Rokia Traore, Tom Morello and Macklemore.
Exclusive videos of their performances, plus beautiful images that reflect the power of the protest song, are available at one.org/protestsongs.
