The project’s aim is to draw the attention of the inhabitants of Budapest to the presence of immigrant communities in the capital, and the contribution of these communities to the colourful cultural life of the city. Within the framework of the project we organise four major cultural events in Budapest, introducing the life of a particular immigrant community in each. The cultural events are supported by a targeted information campaign, and there shall be 10 longer articles presented in prominent magazines and newspapers as well as in the online media. There shall be ten thematic artistic photo-essays prepared during the year about the typical immigrant communities of the city. These immigrant communities shall be the subjects of ten literary works written by well known writers. Based on the photos and the literary texts we will publish a representative book. These products and other relevant material shall be made available on the project’s website.
