Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is bringing its free, interactive exhibition – Forced From Home – to Charlotte’s NASCAR Hall of Fame Plaza from Sunday 10/7 through Sunday 10/14. Forced From Home takes visitors behind the headlines to share the real stories of the 68.5 million people who have been forced to flee their homes.
With experienced Doctors Without Borders aid workers guiding the tours, visitors navigate a 10,000-square-foot installation designed to convey some of the challenges confronting a person forced to flee. Visitors engage with stories and materials gathered from refugee camps, sea rescue missions and emergency medical projects.
Throughout the tour, visitors hear from Doctors Without Borders aid workers who provide humanitarian relief on the front lines of the refugee crisis. The immersive experience includes virtual reality and 360-degree videos that transport viewers to witness the stories and scenes of displaced people in camps and communities around the globe.
The exhibition is free and open to the public on weekends from 10am-6pm and on weekdays from 9am-1pm and 4pm-8pm at the NASCAR Hall of Fame Plaza at 400 E M.L.K. Jr Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28202. Families with children are welcome, but the content is recommended for ages 12 and up.
