“Points of Light” Award

Last month, not only were we lucky enough to be featured in our first ever exhibition at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in New York, but we also were presented with the Points of Light award on behalf of the UK Prime Minister by the British Deputy Consul General, Nick Astbury, in New York.

Points of Light is an award given for outstanding volunteering in society. We never thought that what we started together in a kitchen in Nottingham would have become what it is today.

Prime Minister David Cameron says: “Paula and Harriet have created an online space for millions of people to debate issues around intolerance and prejudice. The I’m Tired Project has given people around the world a creative and visual way to raise awareness of the everyday discriminations they face in order to challenge them and change the society we live in. I am delighted to recognise the impact of their project by recognising Paula and Harriet as UK Points of Light.”
