Short note: Abstract

Anti-phobia, an activist network’s story

The story of the emerging network called ‘Antiphobia’, created by activists and professionals working with migrants, which arose in response to the outbreak of so-called ‘refugee crisis’ in 2015.

The first impulse of creating such a network was World Refugee Day on June 20, 2015, when a group of activists and citizens organized a happening/short information campaign in the streets of Brno, which aimed to deconstruct the most popular hoaxes on refugees, to encourage people to think critically and to initiate a genuine dialogue with the public. Gradually more activists and volunteers joined the network and more public events were organized until the end of 2015. The members of the network keep being connected and collaborating on various levels until now.

The presentation will focus on the inception and evolution of the network, on using a dialogical approach when collaborating with a large number of activists, on the horizontal structure of the network and last but not less on the positive impact this group left in Brno’s activist environment.
