What?

Media (re)presentation and visibility of vulnerable groups like migrants and refugees remains marginal in the mainstream social media across Europe and with a special consideration of the Ukraine situation. The objective remains to identify ways to promote inclusive social media in Europe, and to help these groups creating their own narratives about the place and role of the refugees and migrants in European societies and communities.

This 2nd call gives a particular emphasis to social media representation in various social networks as well as in other relevant channels (e.g. infotainment, gaming etc.). It is a direct follow-up of an ongoing project from a previous call (Re:framing Migrants in the European Media ), which does research on media representation of migrants and refugees, supports a community of inclusive media practices by offering online and offline opportunities for training, knowledge sharing, networking and publishing stories, built a digital platform to facilitate a community of practice, and provides the opportunity for twenty ‘tandems’ producing 100 media works between media practitioners, migrants and artists.

The pilot project will work on two objectives:

  • Leverage on the results of the ongoing project ‘Re:framing Migrants in the European Media’ on a) planning strategies to address the power asymmetries that characterise the social media information space and b) designing strategies and actions to amplify those voices that are now excluded from the debate.
  • Identify and test solutions – showcasing and implementing practical examples – on how migrants can actively participate in shaping their image – and the narratives about them in social media, infotainment, online performance and gaming channels including immersive media interfaces, including through collaboration with artists.

Eligibility

The following activities should be part of the expected actions of the project:

  • Construct relevant and positive online narratives on migration, in collaboration with artists (potentially with a migrant background), influencers, infotainment specialists, game developers, journalists, digital media entrepreneurs and migrants themselves.
  • Develop new or modify collaborative practices, peer learning and professional training for migrants, based on recent digital technologies such as AR, VR, and AI to improve their coverage in social media and other relevant channels such as infotainment, online performance and gaming.
  • Create or extend an existing multidisciplinary community to support migrants’ own communication capacity and increase an existing or initiate a sustainable social media ecosystem around the topic.
  • Maintain or integrate and enrich the existing web platform from the project ‘Re:framing Migrants in the European Media’.

Funding

  • Project duration should normally range between 15 and 18 months (extensions are
  • possible, if duly justified and through an amendment).
  • The available call budget is 490.500,00 €
  • The EU co-financing is limited to a maximum of 75% of the total eligible costs.
