The youth who organised this project learned a lot about human rights, the daily life of asylum seekers, other cultures, and problems around integration. They all contributed their individual experiences to put together an awareness campaign, using their creativity and innovation to produce a short fi lm, take photos, and publish a brochure. In addition, an exhibition and information stands were set up in Innsbruck’s main station, showing the daily life and the many obstacles faced by asylum seekers and Romani people in Austria. Visitors gave positive feedback about the exhibition because they had the chance to have close contact with the respective cultures by enjoying typical food being cooked by asylum seekers and music played by Romanies. The exhibition stayed up for two weeks and will go on to be displayed at train stations in Tirol and Vorarlberg. At the end of this project the participants got a deeper understanding for the situation of asylum seekers and Roma people because members of these groups were involved into all projects.
