Outcast Europe Collection Day @ Pontians Assembly of Tavros

Outcast Europe, Inter Alia, Tavros Residents Initiative’s Solidarity School, Tavros Residents’ Initiative for Solidarity and Pontians Assembly of Tavros 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 your 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/UybPMMJDDqGWKcdg9

We are waiting for you on Sunday 14 May, 17:00 – 20:00, at Pontians Assembly of Tavros, Chrysostomou Smyrnis 24, Tavros, 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.

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