We Dream Under the Same Sky
L’art se mobilise pour les réfugiés

Past: September 16 → 21, 2017

In September 2017, WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY is a week of cultural and civic programming at Palais de Tokyo, followed by an auction by Christie’s at the Gallery Azzedine Alaïa to benefit 5 NGOs that welcome, care for and integrate refugees who have arrived in France after their migration.

The current displacement of populations is the most significant since the Second World War, is mainly originated in wars, territorial disputes, religious conflicts, financial crisis and climate change. Every day, thousands of people leave their situations, their homes, their countries, without any hope of coming back in the near future, or seeing their families again. European countries are divided on the topic of welcoming refugees and in which way to deal with their dramatic fates. Therefore their paths in Europe are often precarious and filled with violence.

For the first time in Europe, this project dedicated to refugees brings together the artistic and intellectual community, along with artists, thinkers, scientists, institutions, galleries and collectors at an international level. Given the emergency of the current situation, we decided to act and to position ourselves as fast as possible so that others would emerge from silence, inaction and a general feeling of hopelessness.
