Acquapendente, Italy: new piece by Helen Bur for Urban Vision Festival.
“There’s been a large spike in the amount of migrant deaths in the Mediterranean Sea with over 600 estimated drowning in the last 4 weeks alone as desperate people continued to flee violence, poverty and conflict.

home is the mouth of a shark /
no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land.’
Warsan Shire (from the poem ‘Home’)”
