THE DISPLACED PEOPLE’S PROJECT

The Displaced People's Project is an immersive humanitarian documentary about trauma-focused sociological art interventions produced in direct collaboration with undocumented and displaced communities.

Displaced Identities

From providing paralegal support to rescuing migrants at sea and from reuniting families to micro financing grassroots initiatives, Tactical Aesthetics works directly with local activists and affected communities to develop multimedia action campaigns.

Renegotiating the boundaries between identity and imagined [national] communities, we journey with those most abandoned by society as they rebuild their lives against all odds. Not only do we document the undocumented, humanize the dehumanized, and amplify the silenced, leadership roles are held by local community members.

Kerr Ndongo Needs Help

*** URGENT EMERGENCY *** Help Rebuild Kerr Ndongo !! Recently Destroyed By Massive Windstorm !!

On July 7th, 2021, a massive windstorm swept through the farming villages of The Gambia killing 10 people and displacing hundreds. Unfortunately, Kerr Ndongo got hit hard. We are asking for your help. Please visit our GoFundMe campaign to make a contribution: https://gofund.me/5b4c3f74

The community of Kerr Ndongo, near the border of Senegal in the North Division of The Gambia, comprises a network of 6 farming communities with a population of roughly 700, half of which are children.

Kerr Ndongo opened their community to us and Kerr Ndongo is one of our new posts. In the coming years, we plan to build a solar-powered shipping container clinic to facilitate with childbirth, malaria prevention, and now the novel corona virus. This will be our first location to test our pilot project for a “clinic-in-a-box”. Clinics-in-Boxes are prefabricated  solar-powered fully equipped pop-up clinics with sanitary medical supplies and medication, and the interior designed for urgent clinical care for remote communities located far away from medical facilities.

PANTERA & TOP MANTA

Recently opened immigrant-owned and operated clothing company and clothing store located in Madrid, Spain.

Pantera is not only a store. Pantera hires undocumented refugees in order to help them get their residency papers. Pantera is both a clothing store and a citizenship machine. Having started an immigrant-owned and operated clothing company, longstanding community activists can help new comers find their community of support.
