WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY The art for the refugees

WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY organises a week of cultural and civic programming at Palais de Tokyo: daily presentations of the 5 beneficiary NGOs, panels, screenings, performances, and an exhibition of the donated works by more than 25 international contemporary artists.

WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY is also a Benefit Auction consisting of the donated works, organised with the expertise of Christie’s and the complicity of the Azzedine Alaïa Gallery in Paris. All the funds will be given to the 5 NGOs that welcome, care for and integrate refugees arrived in France after their migration.

To benefit 5 NGOs: Migreurop, Anafé, La Cimade, Centre Primo Levi et Thot.

The works presented in the exhibition at Palais de Tokyo and auctioned by Christie’s for the Benefit Event organised at the Azzedine Alaïa Gallery were partly created for the event. They are offered by the following artists and their galleries.
