Forced From Home is a free, interactive, educational, outdoor exhibition designed to raise public awareness about the global refugee crisis. Guided by experienced aid workers from Doctors Without Borders, visitors will be given a tour through a variety of interactive, hands-on experiences in which they will be challenged to imagine what life is like for the world’s 60 million displaced people.  The exhibition features an immersive 360° video experience inside a 30-foot diameter dome that transports visitors to Tanzania, Lebanon, South Sudan, and other locations as they are introduced to the contexts and the populations discussed throughout the exhibition. Visitors will interact with items used by refugees and aid workers to get a sense of what displaced people need to survive. For example, visitors will choose what personal items they would take if they were forced to flee, explore refugee shelters, and discover some of the tools that humanitarian agencies utilize.
