Campus in Camps (2012-2015)

Campus in Camps, Dheisheh Refugee Camp, Palestine, 2013

In 2012, we established an experimental educational program in Dheisheh Refugee Camp in Palestine, Campus in Camps, engaging young participants in new forms of visual and cultural representation of refugee camps after more than seventy years of displacement. After three years of spatial interventions and the creation of a common vocabulary, we felt the need to expand the conversation to people and sites that share similar urgencies. The Tree School has emerged from Campus in Camps experience and the desire to be in conversation with other sites and to learn from each other.
