We are young media makers and human rights activist from all over the
world meeting in Budapest to share experiences about the effect of biased
reporting on minorities. Because of the diversity of our personal
histories and professional careers we can learn and support us in many
ways in this workshop.
Over the course of seven days we have studied media biases and minority
rights, and together we have realized a media project about the living conditions
and challenges that minorities in Hungary today face. The final result consists of
a voxpop, expert interviews and interviews with representatives of minorities in Hungary.
Together give an overview about the different opinions and perspectives
on the situation of the minorities in the country.
