We have also the honor to invite to a small poster exhibition "Migration to Europe: Can it Work for Development?" that is a part of the Conference. You may find the chosen posters at the entrance hall of the Czernin Palace of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
The art project was intended for art universities' students in the European Union and beyond, who are able - using a piece of artwork, a poster - to join in a far-reaching debate on immigration from the developing world, its cultural and social values, its barriers and its future. In preparing these posters, students had to consider challenging questions of migration, emigration, and immigration. Students used their creative expression in response to the following questions: Does the migration of people from other parts of the world benefit Europe? Can migration be of significant benefits for both Europe and developing countries? Is Europe an open society or does xenophobia prevail? Do barriers exist between Europe and the rest of the world? Will breaking down barriers help resolve global challenges? How do people from other continents perceive Europe?
The catalogue is available here.
