Teddy On The Go is a whimsical Kuwait-based photoblog depicting a day-in-life of one very active stuffed bear at various locations throughout the country. The site’s daily updates are accompanied by a short descriptive headline and will unfold over the course of a year. The most interesting outcome of the ongoing project has been the audience’s emotional response. Curious viewers have adopted the bear as a “blank slate,” using it as a reflection of their own lives and the local social issues taking place.

The images from the Teddy On The Go project show the bear traveling  across ethnic, societal, and spatial boundaries giving a unique, even holistic perspective on Kuwait that is almost never shown in other forms of cultural expression. As a blog with a growing presence on Facebook, Google Friend Connect and Twitter, the project proves that there is an active and engaged audience in a region that is typically thought to have low Internet involvement.
