‘Keep Wuhan Walking’ started out as an initiative by CITYMAKERS in February 2020 to show solidarity with our peers in China. It includes a key message: Wuhan is more than COVID-19. The illustration on the T-Shirt is by award-winning Shanghai native/Berlin-based designer Yimeng Wu, founder of Studio Wu 無, specializing in intercultural design with a mission to foster cross-cultural understanding. Studio Wu also designed the maps for the online magazine that was published as part of the Keep Wuhan Walking initiative.
