The IDEA BEHIND THE PROJECT

Founders Aviad Arik Herman and Daniel Nilsson were inspired by the story of the strongest girl in the world, Pippi Longstockings.  They dreamt of starting a project that would make a difference in people’s lives. They wanted to provide children with an opportunity to fulfill their dreams in an artistic way. After much discussion, over a yummy brunch, the One Life organisation was founded. 

Photographers from all around the world were invited to participate in this voluntary project, and document moments of breakthroughs & fulfilling children’s dreams against all odds.

 

THE ART PROJECT

Designer Aviad Arik Herman is in the final stages of designing the new national costume for Miss Universe Sweden 2016 inspired by the story of the strongest girl in the world Pippi Longstocking, the literature hero created by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren.

He is creating a costume featuring all the photographs from the One Life Dreams project. The photographs will be printed on fabric, literally embody the very stories of all the children participating in the project.

Next it would be showcased on the oldest TV program in the world – Miss Universe, seen by over 1 billion people worldwide.

In respect to contradiction opinions regarding the beauty pageant, we see this as an extraordinary opportunity to do something that matters, spreading and sharing this beautiful message with as many people as possible.
