7:30–8 pm: Presentation by CampLeaks, an online platform documenting conditions in the Danish asylum centers, where asylum seekers can publish photos and videos anonymously
8–9 pm: "Climate Refugees and Visual Politics," a talk by T.J. Demos (Professor, History of Art and Visual Culture, UC Santa Cruz) on the politics and representations of environmental migration
9–10 pm: Guided tour in CAMP's current exhibition "Deportation Regime: Artistic responses to state practices and lived experience of forced removal"

The talks and tour are conducted in English. All are welcome. Free admission with a suggested donation of DKK 50!
Another important event takes place on Monday, when Refugees Welcome organizes an info meeting for Somali refugees in Trampoline House from 7–9 pm. Five Somali refugees have recently had their temporary residence permits as refugees withdrawn by the Danish Refugee Appeals Board. The Danish Immigration Service has announced that it will screen an additional 1,200 cases, to see whether they can also be withdrawn. This is a new practice never seen before in Denmark. During the information meeting, Michala Bendixen from Refugees Welcome will explain what this case is about – and advise what to do if you are one of the 1,200 who receives a letter from Immigration Service in near future. It is possible to ask questions during the meeting, and everything will be translated into Somali.
