What is Forced From Home?
Forced From Home is a one-hour guided tour through an interactive exhibition designed to educate the public about the global refugee crisis. With experienced Doctors Without Borders aid workers leading the tour, visitors can engage with stories and materials gathered from refugee camps, sea rescue missions, and emergency medical projects around the world. This immersive tour will bring visitors closer to the real experiences of people displaced by violence and extreme hardship worldwide.
Throughout the tour, visitors hear from Doctors Without Borders aid workers who provide humanitarian relief on the front lines of the refugee crisis. The immersive experience includes virtual reality and 360-degree videos that transport viewers to witness the stories and scenes of displaced people in camps and communities around the globe.
The exhibition provides a unique educational experience for adults and children ages 12 and older. Visitors gain a deeper understanding of the global refugee crisis, the dangerous journey made by those who have been forced from home, and the humanitarian assistance offered by Doctors Without Borders.
