The 'bemusement park', which opened this summer (15) in Weston-super-Mare, England, has closed its doors to the public and the artists behind the installations have agreed to send their materials to France, so desperate refugees from Eritrea and Sudan can use them.
A statement on the park's website reads: "All the timber and fixtures from Dismaland are being sent to the 'jungle' refugee camp near Calais to build shelters."
Dismaland was created around an abandoned swimming complex and featured political statement pieces and cultural art from graffiti artist Banksy and others.
