European Alternatives leads Re-Build Refuge Europe, a project that brings together partners from the UK, Sweden, Spain, Finland and Germany, and Greece.

It aims to counteract the dominant discourses of ‘crisis’ and ‘threat’ by using art, culture and innovative practices allowing European citizens and refugees to learn from each other as equals. Activities of the project include storytelling, training and workshops for participants and the digital arts. The results of these collective practices are shaped into an exhibition format and presented to the public as part of the Athens Biennale 2017 and published as a book.

In the next stage, they travel to the TRANSEUROPA Festival 2017 in Madrid.
