Welcome!

BY SIMONA POP
@ VOL 12 ON SEP 19, 2016

In 'Welcome' a talk given by Simona Pop at PechaKucha London Vol 12, Simona definitely pops!

Simona takes us on a weird and wacky tour through all things that represent 'Welcome' to her - such as the PINEAPPLE!! - Any guest who was invited to a party where a whole pineapple was displayed, knew that no expense was spared in guaranteeing the guests' enjoyment. It was this that made the crowned fruit the high symbol of social events and became the meaning of welcome, friendship, and hospitality.

How we can find our own role in the European “Refugee Crisis"

BY AURELIA STR
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

With the onset of a ‘Refugee crisis’ in Europe we are confronted with a narrative that has become too emotional and polarised to understand its core message: refugees are people like you and me.

We can hardly imagine how much struggle it must be to leave one's own country and everything that is close to one's heart behind. But it doesn’t take much for us to open our arms and make someone feel welcome, says Aurelia Streit.

She believes that we can change the current narrative towards refugees in Europe by establishing local platforms for intercultural exchange.
