The people of Yemen are facing what is described by the UN as the ‘world’s worst’ humanitarian crisis – what is the true human cost of this conflict, and how can we understand it in the context of our own lives? Commissioned by IWM, created by FutureEverything, travelling digital artwork Yemen: Say hello to connect takes the conversation beyond the museum walls, inviting you to connect with the real issues people are facing in Yemen right now.

Created by Artist Vicky Clarke and Creative Technologist Chris Ball, with words written and performed by Amerah Saleh, this interactive artwork will be popping up in locations across the city to give you the chance to connect with the impact of the on-going conflict and humanitarian crisis in Yemen.
