Siwa, Egypt - 2005

The first Ship of Tolerance was built in 2005 in Siwa – a remote Egyptian oasis in the Sahara desert – close to the Libyan border. The town of Siwa is surrounded by saltwater lakes but surprisingly many of the kids have never seen a boat before or have painted large-scale art works.

“This work is about dreams,” explained Emilia Kabakov.
