DISPLACEMENT seeks to connect artists and cultural actors from around the world who are addressing themes related to the displacement of people due to disasters and climate change. It will amplify and raise the visibility of their work through PDD events, exhibitions, and the online DISPLACEMENT art gallery.

DISPLACEMENT prioritizes collaboration with local artists in areas most impacted by disaster displacement to highlight their artwork and prompt further awareness about disaster displacement in their regions. The project particularly welcomes work from PDD’s priority geographical regions: Central America, East Africa, South America, South Asia, South East Asia, the Pacific, and West Africa.
