Stories on Instagram against stereotypes

Everyone is talking about immigration, except the protagonists: migrants and refugees themselves.

Most of the population would know what happens with migrants when they get to Europe, but about before? Who could tell us if not them? For this reason, Sabika Shah Povia created a web series in the form of “Stories” for the social media platform Instagram. In the first series of this interactive media production, two countries were in focus – Pakistan and Eritrea.

The aim of the project is to fight hate speech against migrants arriving in Europe by giving them a voice and a medium to tell their own story, as well as to deconstruct stereotypes against countries and populations people know very little about.
