About

This summer, The Figge is teaming up with Students Rebuild to showcase a collection of student self-portraits from across the globe—and right here from our Quad Cities.

Students Rebuild is a collaborative K-12 program that inspires young people worldwide to learn and take collective action on critical global issues. This year, Students Rebuild challenged young people to explore topics such as race, gender, and culture without bias, assumptions, or fear. How? By examining our unique identities and creating self-portraits...thousands of them.

Each self-portrait submitted to Students Rebuild was matched with a $3 donation from the Bezos Family Foundation, raising $600,000 to support programs run by CARE and Search for Common Ground to help youth on different sides of conflict build peace.

By creating self-portraits, students built understanding, empathy and peace around the globe and right in their own classrooms.
