Egala proposes to address the humanitarian crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border by conducting artistic activism workshops for youth in the Podlasie Region. Targeting 14- to 18-year-olds, particularly in Hajnówka, the workshops aim to empower activists in countering disinformation and fear surrounding migrants. The project includes inviting representatives of people on the move for dialogue, leading to an exhibition and outdoor campaign showcasing participants’ work. The project aims to educate youth on migration nuances, build a dialogue with people on the move in Poland, and draw local attention to the border crisis.

Grant amount: €15,000
