Share Your Story (SYS) is an empowerment programme aimed at young BIPoC in Germany and offers creative workshops with a focus on anti-racism. Participants are given the space to connect, relate and talk about their experiences as well as the opportunity to explore creative ways to express themselves.
The workshop is conducted by EPRIE alumni (2018) Su-Jin Song and Joris Niggemeier and features Julia Schwarz as a trained empowerment professional. Due to the Covid-19-pandemic the workshop in Summer 2021 takes place as an online video conference over the weekend of 16th to 18th July.
As part of the Global Ideas Against Racism project, we would like to invite you to the first of three workshops. We will use the method of the ‘future workshop’. The goal is to develop ideas for anti-racism work together with you in a participatory process. In doing so, this workshop will first focus on a ‘criticism’ phase. In the two subsequent workshops, which will take place in summer and fall 2021, the focus will be on a ‘fantasy’ and an ‘implementation’ phase. In the first workshop everything will revolve around the criticism of current conditions. We will collect and cluster your points of criticism. Please tell us in this workshop what bothers you, what is annoying, what is going badly and where there are problems regarding racism. Together we try to formulate the criticisms as precisely as possible and to group the different concerns.

The alumni of the EPRIE program published the new EPRIE Journal 2019 on ‘Overcoming the challenges posed by social media: How to make it work for social change?’.
In the EPRIE Journal we look back on the program in 2019, our visits to NGOs, and elaborate further on that topic. Furthermore, we introduce projects funded by the EPRIE Project Fund and also cover several topics that were brought up by previous EPRIE exchange programs.
