IN TO THE JUNGLE. 

Born from a series of truman show type coincidences, we are working on a snowballing project that has never been more relevant. The timing is immaculate and the networks of people we have previously worked with are all starting to make sense, coming together like a giant awakening slap in the face. Its going to happen and it starts now!

Along with several key organisations, a documentary film maker, journalist and pro photographer we are planning a trip to the Calais Jungle Refugee Camp.

We will spend a week in the camp running daily street art workshops with the young people, hearing their personal accounts and encouraging them to tell their stories through creative self expression. Above everything else, we hope to provide a little respite and time out from the harsh realities of these unhabitable conditions. The workshops will be used as a starting point for conversation and a deeper understanding of the complexities of seeking refuge and the hardship they live through daily.

A key part of this project will be documenting our time over there, the reality of camp life and the people. Our intention is to bring back as much information as possible in order to curate a large scale exhibition. This will showcase the work we have produced with the young people, our own paintings, as well as written journals, photography and a short film which will all be produced by our selected team. A large proportion of the exhibition profits will go to the charities directly working on the frontline in Calais, the rest will be put toward making this project sustainable.

'Why art? surely there are more valuable things that can be done out there'.. we have asked ourselves the same question, feeling a bit awkwardly privileged and helpless. There are a notable amount of teenage refugee's who have very little to occupy themselves with, most of the provisions are understandably for young children & adults with a focus to inform them of legal aspects of migration control. We've read many informative Guardian Article's but the one that resonated with us was about the Secret Cinema project, where director Fabian Riggall explains perfectly: “ we feel passionate that art can tell the truth and that having an escape from their predicament through access to culture will offer a break from this constant reality of living in tents.”

We, Nomad Clan, have put together some rewards for our backers to show our gratitude for helping to support this cause.

Future Goals

We are already in talks to run a sister project in some of the more deprived boroughs of London and Manchester, where we will explore topic’s of home, heritage & identity through a similarly structured series of street art workshops. Although its early days our aim is to show these works alongside the art created in the camp.

There is huge potential for growth within this project and we estimate it will spiral into a travelling exhibition, moving from city to city raising awareness across the UK.

Risks and challenges

We are going into a situation so far removed from anything we are used to and we are unsure of what we might see and experiencing there. We want to challenge common perspective and perceptions, and raise awareness through art and documentations.

Due to the ever changing circumstances of the camp, project dates may change. However this WILL NOT effect our backers receiving there goods.
