Between April 11th 2018 and April 15th 2018, the ‘Queer Faces Migrant Voices: Berlin Edition’ took place in the German capital.
16 queer migrants were selected to join the project, eight in the Netherlands and eight in Germany.
During five days, participants from both countries undertook intensive training in storytelling and radio broadcasting techniques, allowing them to share their stories as migrants and queer individuals, further nourishing the collective mosaic of the Queer & Migrant narrative.
After extensive recording, editing and fine tuning at the Multicult FM studios in Kreuzberg, fragments from the resulting stories were presented by each participant at a public screening in the Xenon Kino cinema, followed by the German premier of internationally acclaimed LGBTQ+ documentary ‘Mr. Gay Syria’. The full stories will be further disseminated through podcasts, radio programs, online platforms and presentations in both countries.
Queer Faces migrant Voices: Berlin Edition was executed conjointly with KIJUFI and funder by the Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie (NL) Berliner Projektfonds Kulturelle Bildung (DE) Fonds voor Sociale initiatieven Stichting Steunfonds bja.cow (NL).
