- This event has passed.
With workshops on photography and storytelling, this project enable around 10 young refugees and migrants to present their personality and lives according to them. The outcomes were presented in a photo exhibition.
The photo training and exhibition of our partner Green Institute Greece is a part of the transnational project “My Life According to Me: A New Narrative on Migration in Europe“, which empowers young migrants in different European countries to tell their own stories by organising educational workshops in the different countries.
This event was hosted with the support of community organisation and media center MediaTerraNea. Under the guidance of trainers, the participants learned about photography, using photoshop and photo editing, along with other relevant practical skills necessary to prepare a successful exhibition. Training was facilitated by Athina Mourtiadou, the founder of Mediaterranea, Filippos Polyzoidis , a self-taught photographer and storyteller, and Saleh Spyridon Darwish a volunteer providing translating services from Greek and English to and from Arabic.
Following this educational workshop, the photo exhibition was organised between 1 and 8 July 2017 in a public space in the city center of Thessaloniki. The aim was to provide space to share stories of migrants directly with the the public through photography.
