British artist Banksy has revealed that his Dismaland bemusement park will be dismantled and used to house refugees.
Banksy announced the decision on Dismaland’s website this week, stating that the structures and material from the park will be sent to a refugee camp in France.
“All the timber and fixtures from Dismaland are being sent to the ‘jungle’ refugee camp near Calais to build shelters. No online tickets will be available,” the post read.

An estimated 5000 refugees and migrants are believed to be living in the camp, fleeing Syria, Libya and Eritrea.
The annonymous street artist opened up the Dismaland theme park in England 5 weeks ago, and it has since been sold out everyday.
