WORKSHOPS #BooksInsteadofBorders
Stories about the experience of migration

Workshop for youth and teachers
The number of places is limited!

Held by: Strefa WolnoSłowa

What is it like to be forced to flee?
What happens when the dream destination turns out to be different from the one we’ve been told about?
And the country we dreamed of as a refuge, a place of open possibilities and peace, refuses to accept us?
How does the time pass when the temporary becomes infinite, days turn into weeks, weeks into months, and finally the temporary becomes everyday life?
What does it mean to wait, what is it like to lose hope and feel the fear?

Starting from the images and stories of people migrating to Europe, we will consider what is universal in the experience of people on a forced journey.
Inspired by cultural texts, we will talk about what is happening on the Polish-Belarusian border and on other borders of Europe. Together, we will think about the language of the images and words with which we describe these events and experiences, and how these, in turn, shape our perception and understanding of migration.
We will invite young people to participate in performative exercises and open discussions. Through our creative activity, we will talk about migrations in the context of socio-political events in the world, while referring to our own experiences and biographies. We will focus on literary, theatrical, film and photographic inspirations as well as on theatrical tools to describe the experience of migration.

The action is organised under the Bilateral Initiative “Youth for the City, City for Youth – projects and initiatives involving and including local communities” supported by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, through the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021.

The workshop will be conducted in Polish;
