We Are Directly/Indirectly Responsible for the Fact That 50 Million People are Forced to Migrate from their Home Country Each Year.
So say the Giddy Biddy Collective who are presenting Infinity - a social awareness installation project which is taking place on 18th & 19th September as part of Galway City Culture Night. This is to raise awareness of Forced Migration issues within Europe. A full size 20 foot shipping container will be placed in Mainguard Street, Galway for a 24 hour period. Eight volunteers will be locked inside the container with only water to drink and a portable loo for waste, simulating the conditions experienced by the victims of forced migration.
The installation is designed to provoke the viewer to stand up and acknowledge their part in the infinite link that perpetuates Forced Migration.
