Migration Week | Marrakech
Studio Orta is pleased to announce the fifth edition of Antarctica World Passport during Migration Week Marrakech (December 5-11, 2018) for the project DISPLACEMENT: Uncertain Journeys.
Migration Week will bring together representatives from UN member states, international organisations, civil society organisations, and other stakeholders. The two major official events will be the 11th Global Forum on Migration and Development Summit (GFMD) and the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Conference to Adopt the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM).
For Migration Week, Lucy + Jorge Orta have proposed this special Antarctica World Passport edition to be distributed to delegates and invited guests during the two official events. This will also include an engagement activity to amplify the Platform on Disaster Displacement messages, with the aim to build greater support for improved protection and assistance for the millions of people displaced around the world each year due to the impacts of disasters and climate change.
The DISPLACEMENT research project was initiated in 2014 by the late Professor Chris Wainwright at the University of the Arts London in collaboration with the Nansen Initiative, and is now led by UAL doctoral candidate, Hannah Entwisle Chapuisat. Its curatorial mission is to bring art research and practice to bear on international policy making addressing displacement related to disasters and climate change.
