The workshops will provide a space for discussions about personal experiences and the creation of proposals for necessary changes.
We invite migrants living in Bielsko-Biała to participate in workshops where we will be exploring possible visions of the future. We will envision a community that is attentive and caring, with its shape determined by all its residents. Our focus will be on reflections about Europe and European identity. The workshops will provide a space for discussions about personal experiences and the creation of proposals for necessary changes. During the meeting, there will be an opportunity to enhance public speaking skills. Participants will be invited to create speeches, which we will record using video.
Speeches can be created in any language. The meeting will be conducted in Polish with the option of translating its segments into Ukrainian, Russian, and English.
