Doctors without Borders has mounted a free exhibition, “Forced From Home,” in Pioneer Courthouse Square on the refugee crisis. Hours are 9 am – 5 pm. Days Mon 10/16 (that’s today) through Sun 10/22.
Here’s a brief description of what you will find at the exhibit (more info at forcedfromhome.com):
Forced From Home brings to life the individual stories behind the refugee crisis and offers a deeper understanding of the journey made by more than 65 million displaced people around the world. Visitors experience virtual reality and 360˚ video, and interact with materials gathered from refugee camps, sea rescue missions, and emergency medical projects around the world.
Guided by experienced Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) aid workers, you’ll travel through a 10,000-square-foot space designed to convey the challenges facing a person forced to flee.
Forced From Home is fully-accessible and open to the public. Tours take approximately one hour.
Here are two more chances to meet our aid workers and hear about the work we do:
