The project „Hosts“ helped to set social impulses in the east wine district in the east of lower austria. Only if the abstract term “refugee flow” changes into “familiar faces”, we will be able to break borders and build up things together as one big group.
The first phase in July is called „meet and take fotos“. As many local people as possible are asked to take pictures with the refugees. Those where taken in private, in public, in a group or just as pairs. They do not have to be public, if they do not want to. It should just be a foto that you like to look at and which helps you to remember the situation.
Getting to know
On 14th of august 2016 the second phase – a big party – took place in Oberschoderlee 20. It was a possibility for all guests and hosts to get to know each other better. It included preparing the party all together, singing and dancing, cooking different traditional meals from each country and having conversations, of course .
The pictures of the first phase where presented at the party and given to the host and the guest as a memory of their future friends.
