Another story on and of migration Public meeting in Brussels, June 2022
OPPORTUNITIES, another story of and on migration
The 7th of June 2022, Beweging, coordinator of the OPPORTUNITIES project, organized its first Belgian public event in KVS, the Flemish Royal Theatre in Brussels.
This event was a first appetizer for the Belgian stakeholders involved in the Belgian Cross Talks the upcoming period.
This event started with an introduction into the OPPORTUNITIES project by Michel Debruyne, General Coordinator.
A first panel debate concentrated on the importance of stories. We used the words of Audre Lorde to introduce this panel: "silence will not protect you".
A second panel put forward the socio-political topic of inclusion on the forefront; here we used the words of Audre Lorde: "the master's tools will not destroy the masters'house".
In between the two panels Stefan Mertens talked about the results of the research on attitudes and on tweets of different politicians.
A fruitful event where OPPORTUNITIES met the potential stakeholders of the coming Cross Talk.
All speakers have made a short video. You will find them soon on the website from Beweging (see partner page)
