"Tell me your story!" Screening of short films jointly produced by Syrian youth & Bilkent University students
The event brings together university students and their Syrian peers who tell their stories on camera. The films produced will be screened on 22 December, at Kızılay Büyülü Fener Movie Theatre.
All interested are welcome to attend!
What is the purpose of the event?
Engagement and mutual understanding are key for the Syrian refugees. Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Turkey, Ambassador Christian Berger underlined that the idea for the project came in an effort to bring together Syrian refugees and members of the host communities in a creative way. The aim is to facilitate integration and create an opportunity to present to the public the current situation through the eyes of youth.

The Deputy Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Turkey, Minister Counsellor Gabriel Vinals Munuera will open the event.
The Turkish Kızılay working in close partnership with the EU, diplomatic missions of member states, UNHCR, members of the press and delegations from Bilkent University will also attend the screening.
Documentary and film producers Michael Chauvistre, Aras Özgün and Deborah Hardt will join the event in order to organise a workshop for students.
What does the event consist of?
The "Tell me Your Story" event will bring together students of the Communication and Design Department of Bilkent University, their Syrian peers and experts on documentaries. Young participants, who mutually share their stories throughout the event, will have the opportunity to get to know each other more closely on one hand, and receive individual training on story-telling from communication professionals on the other.
During the two-day event, Bilkent University students and Syrian youth will be briefed on the work carried out by EU in Turkey on the Syrian crisis and integration. After the event, Syrian youth preparing to enrol in higher education will tour Bilkent University and will be briefed about its different faculties.
