UIndy Athens organises a forum on racism titled “Individual Responsibility – A Conversation on Racism” that will take place on Friday March 22, 2013 (15.00) at UIndy Athens Cultural Center (5 Markou Avriliou/2 Kiristou & Lysiou Street, Plaka).
The Forum aims to bring attention to the rise of racism in Greece that has and continues to affect local communities. Representatives from different organizations, associations and individuals will shed light on this issue that is affecting the life of many foreigners living in and visiting Greece. Some of the topics that will be discussed are as follows: Fighting Racism: The Legal Framework of the Council of Europe and the EU; The Impact of Racism on the Muslims of Greece; Racism and Gender; Racism in Everyday Life; A Story of Racism; Counseling Workshop on Racism, etc.
Also, re-evaluation counseling, which involves the audience in one-on-one sharing of experiences and feelings concerning racism will complement Forum discussions in an effort to develop an interactive experience amongst speakers and the audience.
The forum concludes with a photo-exhibition titled “Unknown Persons” by photographer Panayis Chrysovergis and a reception. The photographer, in cooperation with Greek-Arab news site alyunaniya.com, presents a series of portraits of people of different origins photographed in Greece and other countries.
