On the occasion of the Nansen Initiative Global Consultation, Lucy + Jorge Orta’s work Antarctic Village - No Borders and Antarctica World Passport Bureau will be displayed with the presence of the artist, Lucy Orta. The work explores issues of territory and identity.

Every year, millions of people are forced to leave their homes because of floods, tropical storms, earthquakes, and droughts. Many find refuge within their own country but some have to move abroad. In the context of climate change, such displacement is likely to increase. National and international responses are insufficient, and protection for affected people remains inadequate.

On the occasion of the Nansen Initiative Global Consultation, Lucy + Jorge Orta’s work Antarctic Village - No Borders (pictured below) and Antarctica World Passport Bureau will be displayed with the presence of the artist, Lucy Orta. The work explores issues of territory and identity.

Panel discussions between artists, researchers and policymakers will also be held to discuss the topics of disasters and displacement, and the role artistic contributions can make in policy processes.
