Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has been working with different initiatives in refugees camp for a while now. He has also staged a performance/installation in Berlin last month, coinciding with the film festival.

His latest projects involves music. By bringing a piano in a refugee camp at the Greek–Macedonian border, a place that can seem otherwise without hope, the artist affirms the humanity of the people who live in camps after having fled their countries.

He has invited Nour Al Khzam, a 24 years old Syrian pianist, to play. She fled her country and is trying to reach her husband who is already in Germany.
