Refugees Crossing

Refugees Crossing is an interactive art project which invites members of the public to raise awareness of the real issues refugees face by placing fact filled paper boats in public places. It was started in August 2015.  The messages have been translated into six languages and over 7,000 boats have been posted across the world.  Since September 2015, the project has been developing collaborative work with schools and colleges to encourage children and young adults to consider the plight of refugees and engage in an open discussion about migration. To get involved contact the Facebook community site here.
