YOU AND I, HERE AND THERE

An exhibition dealing with forced displacement, arrival and living together for children ages 6 to 12

Running time:
  • 29. September 2017 - 25. February 2018
In the past few years, millions of people have fled from war, injustice and hunger – half of them children and youth. Faizal and Nesrin from Afghanistan and Arif, Azmi, Lina and Zahra from Syria – like many others – sought refuge here in Austria. Why did they have to leave their homes and flee?
What fears, hopes and dreams did they bring along with them? How do they spend their time? What do they think and feel? In the exhibition the children will hear the stories of these six kids during a program of singing, dancing, playing, writing, listening to music, weaving, baking and eating together. They will find out how they are different from them and what they actually might have in common. The more we know about others, the easier it is to get along with them.
