Outcast Europe Collection Day & open celebration @ Mesopotamia

Outcast Europe, Inter Alia and Mesopotamia Solidarity School are co-hosting a collection day, dedicated to memory and oral history.

Do you own an item related to stories of migration? Is there, at our home, a tool, a utensil, jewellery, a piece of clothing, a document that you inherited and which connects you to your family’s past?

Are you interested to place it in a context that understands migration and displacement as a continuous journey of people from different places and eras?

Would you like your experiences to be heard, spread, recognised and appreciated?

Would you like to contribute to the creation of a collective narrative?

We invite you to share your story with us!

If you are interested in participating, you can fill in the participation form here: https://forms.gle/fdE6JVW3jhievkZ97

We are waiting for you on Saturday 8 April, 16:00 – 20:00, at Mesopotamia, Platonos 13, Moschato, along with your items, to photograph them and hear their stories.

The material that will be gathered will be posted on Outcast Europe’s platform. 

A celebration will follow, open to the public, starting at 20:00!

For further information, you can contact Hara Papadatou (papadatou@interaliaproject.com).

Outcast Europe is a digital exhibition of personal items offered by residents of European countries. The objects carry personal stories of their owners and make up a collection that, crossing historical periods and country borders, echoes the experience of migration and displacement as a personal experience and as part of the collective consciousness of Europeans. Outcast Europe activities are self-financed by Inter Alia.
