Duration: November 2018 – May 2020

„OPEN EUROPEAN SOCIETIES“ brings together 8 countries and 11 partners, all committed to supporting migrant and refugee integration, community development, tackling xenophobia, discrimination and Hate Speech. The aim of „OPEN EUROPEAN SOCIETIES“ is to eradicate the stigmatisation of migrants and refugees, by helping the communities of the participating countries to overcome stereotypes and by developing counter-narratives through video campaigns and video recorded stories of third-country nationals that give more accurate insights into their situations and experiences.

The transnational events in Dresden (December 2018 & April 2020), London (March 2019) and Thessaloniki (November 2019) aim to reinforce the foundations laid for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding by involving native citizens, third-country nationals and representatives of the partner organisations in a series of cultural, art and digital media activities that encourage dialogue and cultural exchange. The project website will provide an online library of resources which includes all the final products and activities of the „OPEN EUROPEAN SOCIETIES“ project aspiring to promote understanding, diversity and acceptance.
