We are excited to let you in on the finals of Remapping Europe - a Remix Project. With the EP elections coming up in May, we feel it is even more important to raise awareness for the imagery of migrants in our media, who are still often portrayed along merely national, ethnic or religious lines. Join us on our journey!
