Presented by Doctors Without Borders, Forced From Home is a free interactive exhibition designed to raise public awareness of the world’s 65 million refugees. With an experienced Doctors Without Borders aid worker as your guide, you’ll see, hear, and interact with images, stories, and materials gathered from refugee camps, rescue missions, and emergency medical projects around the world. During the one hour tour you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by those who have been forced from their homes, and the humanitarian solutions offered by Doctors Without Borders.
Forced From Home is free, family friendly, fully accessible, and open to the public. School field trips are welcome. Walk-up any time between 9am and 3.30pm to join the next available tour.
