Thousands of children are born in Greece every year, and the parents are foreigners – emigrants. Another few thousands arrive in the country with their parents, from countries outside the EU, hoping to live in a safer place and to have the future they want. Those young people want to get integrated in the society, for which they need to have equal rights with the citizens of the respective country – in this case, Greece.

“Supporting the less favored” – the nongovernmental organization ANCE organizes a two day festival “Talking about my generation – the festival for second generation emigrants” with the support of the EU and Anna Lindh Foundation. This festival is within the program framework “Europe for all? Let us make young people act for European citizenship and for second generation emigrants”.

The program aims to attract people and make them think about the problems which second generation emigrant children in Greece and in Europe face every day and to give opportunity to those young people to participate together in making art, to get to know each other and to express their voice.

The main event of the program is the two day festival on November 14 and 15 in “Technopolis” in Gazi, where second generation emigrants will present their photo exhibitions, graffiti, video-art and films. There will also be theatrical plays and concerts. Participating in the festival will also be nongovernmental organizations from Spain, turkey, Romania, Egypt, Jordan and Palestine.
