What you need to be warm

In 2019, Neil Gaiman asked his Twitter followers: What reminds you of warmth? Over 1000 responses later, Neil began to weave replies from across the world into a poem in aid of the UNHCR’s winter appeal. It revealed our shared desire to feel safe, welcome and warm in a world that can often feel frightening and lonely. Illustrated by a group of artists from around the world, ‘What You Need to Be Warm’ is an exploration of displacement and flight from conflict through the objects and memories that represent warmth. It is about our right to feel safe, whoever we are and wherever we are from. It is about holding out a hand to welcome those who find themselves far from home.
