For those in the Boston area, the MSF exhibition Forced from Home is an engaging discussion about the plight of displaced peoples throughout the world. It’s a 45-55 minute tour, you can drop in or reserve a spot ahead of time, and it includes both a 360 degree film of various refugee camps as well as multiple short presentations around different aspects of life for displaced people. Worthwhile.
