After the living art exhibit ended last week, Banksy decided to donate the materials to help out the refugees and to create a conversation about the refugee crisis.
The refugee camp that the materials will be donated to is known as the “Jungle”, which is a massive tent city located in the Calais’ port. Many of the migrants staying there are awaiting passage to the UK.
Perlan is an attempt to soar a motorless powered aircraft to over 90,000 ft for a dramatic record as well along with being a platform for science. The team is sponsored by some rather deep pockets - Airbus - and Perlan 2 saw its first flight a few days ago. Eventually they want to go to 100,000 ft.
