In 2018 -2019 Mere Phantoms is creating Shadows Without Borders, a series of interactive shadow installations travelling to refugee communities in Greece and Turkey. We are working with organizations that are already connected to these communities to offer a series of interactive workshops. At the moment we are getting ready to hit the road and the project will commence late May 2018. We will share details with you regarding the communities we will be visiting and the work we build together as the project grows. We would like to thank our amazing partners Khora (Athens), Project Elea (Athens), Atta Festival (Istanbul) and Al-Farah SGDD (Istanbul). This project is made possible with the Canada Council for the Arts New Chapter Grant.
