Description
Today over 65 million people have been forced from home globally; many are refugees driven out of their countries by war, deprivation, and persecution. In the fall of 2016, Doctors Without Borders launched a multi-year interactive traveling exhibit, that recently debuted in five US cities, to broaden public understanding of the plight of refugees and migrants. Join panelists for a discussion on the exhibition, this critical global issue, its implications for the museum field, and a deeper exploration of our role and responsibilities to effect change.
