More information about the project:

The aim of “Voice4Migrants” is to foster dialogue on policies of migrant integration and the reception of refugees across European countries, and to enable European citizens to develop counter-narratives to hate speech. What is more, it will provide migrants with the opportunity to share their experiences of integration polices with the public.

This Creative Workshop, however, is not the only event that “Voice4Migrants” implements: there will be also a workshop in Hungary and a training course in Spain, as well as 2 more events focused on evaluation and dissemination of results in Lithuania. Hence the journey for you won’t stop here!
