Date: 3 - 7 March, 2009
Location: Winter Camp 09, Amsterdam
On the need for safe havens and the success of cooperation between resident artists and human rights efforts. With origins in experiences of censorshiop in Sudan, FD saves lives and gives freedom to victims of persecution; if you do not have a network you can disappear. Support from FD comes with access to a large number of other networks (art, human rights, migration, journalism) and global reach, its geography of placement is global as well; as people have always desired to travel, FD supports their choice of location, but does not choose for them. In a broader context, state-led development efforts transfer resources from the poor to the rest; instead, we should directly support the coming together of people, which is why FD collects and recycles resources to support local efforts.
