Every minute eight people are forced to flee war, persecution or terror. More than 2,500 people have died trying to cross the Mediterranean in rubber dinghies and rusting fishing boats so far this year, according to the UN’s refugee agency’s report.
In this multimedia performance piece by the 2016 Oak Fellow @Khalidalbaih, you will live a few moments with these refuges at sea. Dress warmly.
This performance is co-organized by Colby’s Center for the Arts and Humanities, The Oak Institute for the Study of International Human Rights, and the Museum.
