PlayforRights invited all the participants of the series of events on the frame of the International day for Peace to join a human right campaing focused on the European refugee crisis was hitting Europe during that period. Hence refugees, artists and public in general, gathered on Monday 21st September at the Asylum Centre in Basel to celebrate all together the International Peace Day 2015.
During the campaign, PlayforRights encouraged refugees to voice out their needs in Switzerland while being stuck in the detention camps. Our only intention was to ‘be there’, so to speak to share with them a moment of harmony and peace; showing to the participants ‘we are here’.
The campaign was run in a spontaneous way and many of the asylum seekers joined because of the proximity of this campaign to their asylum center. We close the event by sharing a hot drink chocolate sponsored by a small food shop in Basel.
