Athens - Outcast Europe Exhibition and Conference
Start: 25/10/2018 at 09:00
End: 27/10/2018 at 20:00
The civic action organisation Inter Alia invites the public to the exhibition and conference ‘Outcast Europe’ to be held in Athens in October 2018. The exhibition brings to Athens personal items and stories of displacement and movement, as the last in a series of exhibitions that have taken place in Czech Republic, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. It echoes the impact of migration and refugee movement as part of a collective conscience of the peoples of Europe. It gives the visitor a point of view from which to gaze upon collective history as personal memory.
The exhibition will be free admission and will be open to the public between 4-27 October 2018 from 12:00 to 20:00 on all days except Sundays, when it will be open from 11:00 to 18:00. Those interested in organising school and group visits should contact Outcast Europe.
With the intention of keeping up the discussion about those moving to European societies, a conference titled ‘Potentials and Challenges for the Migration Crisis’ will take place alongside the exhibition, with the participation of academics, activists and institutional representatives from Greece and abroad. The conference will be held on 25-26 October 2018, at Bageion, Omonoia Square.
During the conference a few panel discussions will focus on issues of integration, such as:
- Comparative understanding and analysis of current migration flows in relation to past migrant populations that are already integrated
- The rise of racism, xenophobia and intolerance in Europe: issues of identity of the receiving communities and refugee and migrant groups
- The process, pace and degree of integration of refugees and migrants in host societies
More information about the conference can be found on the conference programme.
