Refugees have arrived in Europe, but they haven’t yet entered the public sphere. When they do, it is as characters in other people’s stories – desperate faces, surging hoards and floating bodies. We rarely hear from young refugees as experts or legitimate voices.
The Displaced in Media Policy Forum will take place on Friday the 28th of September at the Maison de Provence de la Jeunesse et des Sports (MDJS) in Marseille. At the Policy Forum we will be connecting the stories, ideas and approaches developed through the partnership Displaced in Media to a broader conversation about policy for inclusion of refugees, migrants and minorities in European public sphere.
The aim of the Displaced in Media partnership is to connect practices of mediamakers, journalists, activists and educators, and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, methodologies and experiences between them: nothing about us, without us.
