“Here and There: Bicycles in Recognition of Refugee Resilience” Join the Macalester community on Thursday, October 29th, in a one-day public art and engagement project recognizing refugee journeys from Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria to seek asylum in Europe.

These refugee journeys end with a pile of confiscated bikes at the borders. You can participate by bringing your bicycle and lock to build our own bike pile. Just drop your bike off at Old Main Lawn between 8am and 10am on Thursday, October 29th.  Bikes will be monitored by IGC Staff and Campus Security throughout the day.
