Event description

Description

A Night of Stories for Peace is a response to the news, documentaries, newspaper articles and all the media covering topics about immigration which exposes us daily with statistics, countries, tribes and general information that little tell us about deeper facts, such as names, struggles, root causes but also hope and contributions in the receiver countries, that would humanize immigrants individually.

A Night of Stories for Peace presents in its Journey Edition, a deeper and individualized method of storytelling about immigration as a way of awareness, healing and steps forward.

“Numbers and maps tell horror stories, but the stories of deepest horror are perhaps those for which there are no numbers, no maps, no possible accountability, no words ever written or spoken. And perhaps the only way to grant any justice -were that even possible- is by hearing and recording those stories over and over again so that they come back, always, to haunt and shame us. Because being aware of what is happening in our era and choosing to do nothing about it has become unacceptable. Because we cannot allow ourselves to go on normalizing horror and violence. Because we can all be held accountable if something happens under our noses and we don’t dare even look.”
Valeria Luiselli – Tell me how it ends.
