In retrospect: this human world Refugee Party at Grelle Forelle

It is with great indignation that we have been following the current situation concerning the support and accommodation of refugees in Austria. We are especially concerned about the unaccompanied minors, which often are housed in huge inadequate shelters without any special support and have to stay there without any hope of an improvement of their situation.

This situation urged us to take action and connect with a network of people and together with Kinderfreunde and the Austrian Asylkoordination, the this human world team organized an event on Friday the 28th of August for young refugees at Grelle Forelle in Vienna.

We were so pleased to put a huge smile on 180 people’s faces. The young refugees did breakdance, graffiti and DJ-ing and there was a lot of dancing too!

We would like to thank 9th district of the municipality of Vienna and several other sponsors, which supported this event. Zielpunkt contributed to this event with meat, Adamah Biohof contributed with vegetables, Ströck contributed with bread. Patrick Müller, “punks”-restaurant founder and former Silent Cooking cook, transformed the ingredients into a wonderful buffet. Fairtrade contributed with juices and refreshments and our workshop organizers organized great activities for the 180 party guests!

It was a great party, which first and foremost was a great joy not only for the young people that took part in it, but also was a great and memorable experience for the this human world team as well! We would like to express our huge thanks once again to our partners Kinderfreunde Wien, Asylkoordination Österreich and also all other ones that were involved and made this event possible!

SPECIAL: Crowdfunding Filmworkshops in Traiskirchen

Together with Anabel Rodriguez, Sepp Brudermann und Ehsan Ehsani our team started a special project to hold weekly film workshops in Traiskirchen with the young refugees living there at the refugee camp. Our goal is to teach them how to shoot short documentaries & shorts themselves, which then shall be screened at the this human world Festival from the 3rd until the 11th of December in Vienna.

The workshops will be financed through a Crowdfunding-Campaign that was also nominated for the Bank Austria Kunstpreis.

Please support this initiative and also share our Crowdfunding Page! We are offering a lot of goodies!
