Voices On The Wind
Voices on the Wind is an online installation of film, audio, and photography that shares different perspectives of the refugee experience. Three galleries entitled “SEE”, featuring photographer Steve McCurry and singer songwriter Sting; “HEAR”, featuring refugee-moderated podcasts; and “MAKE”, featuring an interactive gallery, call on the viewer’s senses to engage in the subject matter in a reimagined reality, from both a child’s and adult point of view.
Voices on the Wind is presented by World Frontiers Forum and Chasing the Light Studio in partnership with UNHCR and UN75.
The Writing is on the Wall: Annexation Past and Present
This exhibit examines the plight of the Palestinian people, focusing on the wall built in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. It explores this through the words of advocates and public personalities, and through images from artists and human rights activists who have utilized the wall as a canvas to express their solidarity with the Palestinian people.
The exhibit is organized by the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People in cooperation with the Permanent Observer Mission of the State of Palestine to the UN.
One Day, I Will
This exhibition documents the hopes and dreams of children trapped in humanitarian crises. Combining an artistic approach with a documentary purpose, the images highlight the crucial role of education for children in humanitarian crises, for securing their safety and future opportunities. They are a testimony to the vulnerability, resilience and creativity of today’s youth and how they can shape the future.
The exhibit is organized by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA).
