Banksy's 'Dismaland' Themepark Will Be Dismantled & Used To Build Refugee Shelter

Capture

After 5 weeks and 150,00 visitors the art installation is being dismantled and sent to a refugee camp. Per a statement on the website:

"Coming soon… Dismaland Calais.
All the timber and fixtures from Dismaland are being sent to the ‘jungle’ refugee camp near Calais to build shelters. No online tickets will be available."

The camp in Calais, France houses 4,000 refuges and migrants and is in poor condition in need of materials and donations. Banksy's themepark included an installation dedicated to the crisis.
