Media against Hate — Video contest. Be part of it.

What is it about?

Media – in all its forms – play a cru­cial role in the sha­ping of iden­ti­ties, in the pro­mo­ti­on or inhi­bi­ti­on of dia­lo­gue, soli­da­ri­ty and reco­gni­ti­on. Which stra­te­gies and tools can empower coun­ter-nar­ra­ti­ves and chall­enge main­stream per­cep­ti­ons of refu­gees, of migra­ti­on, of mar­gi­na­li­sed groups in general?

This in an invi­ta­ti­on to pro­fes­sio­nal jour­na­lists, com­mu­ni­ty media prac­ti­tio­ners and media stu­dents in Euro­pe to docu­ment how their dai­ly work helps fight against dis­cri­mi­na­ti­on and coun­ter hate. We sup­port that!
