The AWARE campaign, in collaboration with the Multipurpose Municipal Centre of Nicosia, organizes an interactive workshop on “anti-racist journalism and the fight against hate speech”.
The event will take place on Wednesday 18 December 2019, on the International Immigrant Day, at 18. 00 pm at the Nicosia Multipurpose Municipal Centre, Nikiforou Foka 40, Nicosia 1016 (Famagusta Gate).
In the workshop, young participants will have the opportunity to meet journalists dealing with refugee and migrant issues. Journalists Costas Constantinou from ‘’Politis’’, Olga Constantinou and Maria Tsaggari – Alpha TV and the Iranian journalist Behzad Ahmadinia, will convey their experiences to the participants, from their experience in the coverage of events.
Then the young people themselves will interview refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants from Syria, Somalia, Cameroon, Palestine and Gambia. They will conduct investigative journalism around their living conditions, the difficulties they face in Cyprus, their dreams and aspirations in the society that welcomes them.
The young participants will be offered authentic food, prepared by a refugee family from Syria.
