A welcoming event from refugees in Geneva

In partnership with the Hospice général, the FIFDH organizes free screenings, encounters and events in collective accommodation centres that provide housing for migrant people.

Four collective accommodation centres (CHC) that provide housing for migrant people will open their doors to the public (Presinge, Anières, Tattes, Rigot). On the programme: the screening of the documentary Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (If You're a Girl), skateboarding initiations open to all, Eritrean, Syrian, Somali and Afghan buffets, as well as discussions between Festival guests, centre residents and the public. These events help to involve these centres in the local life and encourage encounters. Come meet new people!

Transport for the Festival will be organized for migrant people from the surrounding CHCs who do not have film screening sites as well as for the participants of the reception centre of La Roseraie.

Furthermore, the Festival and the Hospice général will continue their partnership in which residents of the collective accommodation centres are integrated into the FIFDH's volunteer team, in order to encourage encounters between volunteers, the public and migrants.
