Over 36,000 people have lost their lives in transit trying to seek asylum in Europe since 1993.* In 2019 alone, out of 2,290 people who have attempted the sea crossing from North Africa to Italy, 350 died en route.**

To join us in creatively honouring these lives, request a list of people whose memories you can write, make and speak out, here:
