LISTEN has come to an end. In our last newsletter we report about our final event in Palermo, present the winners of the LISTEN award and inform how to receive the LISTEN label, to show that your organisation engages in promoting refugees’ learning with innovative methods. Check it out here.
From the 18 submitted stories the jury nominated two winners whose stories stood out from the other very good stories – one in the category “fiction” and one in the category “non-fiction”:
Prudence from Nigeria has won in the category “fictional stories” with her story “The Arrogant Princess” – a story about a princess who learnd the hard way that life is not a picnic.
Mamadou from Guinea has won in the category “true stories” with his story “A talented boy”. His story is about a young boy who travelled alone from Africa to Europe to live his dream to become an artist and musician.
You can listen to both stories in our story collection.
The other stories will also be published in our story collection.
The LISTEN Festival of Social and Labour inclusion of Migrants and Refugees was a great event organised by our Italian partner CESIE in the premises of the social enterprise and coworking space “Molti Volti”. It was a wonderful conclusion to our project! The highlights were the workshops and the award ceremony – the two winners of the LISTEN award were celebrated. Continue reading Festival in Palermo

The LISTEN team invites you to enter the LISTEN award with a story – fictional or real. The story can be a memory, a self-created story, a fairytale, legend or myth.
The stories should reflect the idea of LISTEN aimed to promote intercultural storytelling with refugees and migrants as we believe that a story can build bridges and create mutual understanding between different cultures.
With your permission your story will become part of our LISTEN collection of (life) stories.
