Worlds Refugee Day with a ceremony in the cathedral at 11.00.

Camilla and Marielle were there with Migrant Car and Border Threads. Some tourists helped moving the migrant from the lawn, today placed outside the entrance where it almost blocked the entrance and got a lot of attention. During the ceremony the speakers talked about borders. How far away does a drowning child have to be before we bother to rescue?

Overall it was a warm and human ceremony. The priest talked about how the church (just like art) can be a borderless space for humanity. Carrying the textile documents from the war zones in the Middle east into this peacefull house was a meaningful experience.
