Until the 2nd October you have another chance to see the excellent Coral Frontiers: Towards a Post-Military Landscape, an innovative project which looks at the potential for Chagossian return to their homeland. You can find full details of the work and the Sustain RCA Award Show on the Royal College of Art website.

The work, which we previously described during a prior exhibition earlier this year, looks at how through green technologies and infratructure developments Chagossians could sutainably redefine the landscape as military influence gradually recedes.

Speaking about her project during a previous interview with us, Ms Rogina explained the approach she had taken to the project, stating that:

"“I chose not to impose a design solution for the resettled community and leave to the Chagossians to decide how to inhabit the island. Instead, this project is a proposal for their first means of survival – the infrastructure that may sustain their resettlement,“

The exhibition is now for a well deserved award in the Visionary Processes category. You can see the work for yourself at the Kensington Gore campus of the Royal College of Art in London (click for directions), from 11AM-5PM every day, including weekends, until the 2nd October.

We are very grateful to Rosa for choosing to use her considerable abilities in service of the Chagossian fight for justice. In an interview with us earlier this year, Rosa stated that she hoped her project could be a "powerful tool...raise awareness of this unlawful story and help Chagossian community in their struggle to return home."
