Hero Exchange

A Global Collaboration

The Hero Exchange is a project that connects students around the world in a creative conversation about who inspires us. Students from different cultures draw portraits of people and things that inspire them, and we show them together in a collective exhibit, hoping to connect cultures, learn from each other, and start conversations.
