Forced From Home // Doctors Without Borders – free exhibition on the refugee crisis

September 15 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Doctors Without Borders presents Forced From Home, a free interactive tour that takes you behind the headlines about the global refugee crisis. Guided by experienced Doctors Without Borders aid workers, you’ll travel through a 10,000-square-foot space designed to convey the challenges facing a person forced to flee. You’ll also learn about the humanitarian aid we provide along the way.

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.

Forced From Home tours are free, fully accessible, and take roughly one hour to complete. Families are welcome, however the content is best suited to children ages 12+.

We will be offering an American Sign Language (ASL) tour for the deaf and hard of hearing on Saturday, September 15, at 11am. There is no need to sign up for this free tour, just show up!
