In Barcelona, the HIT seminar was orgaized by CEPS Projectes Socials at the Auditorium Sant Martí, on the 21st of November 2019. It was held on the stage of the auditorium (without audience), to emphasize symbolically that with HIT we are bringing the conversations about Human Rights & Hate Speech and Behaviour Against Migrants to the centre of the stage.
16 people attended the HIT seminar in Barcelona. Participants were invited by email, targeting a selection of profiles from the media, youth services, cultural and creative sector. They were chosen because they can be role models for young people and because they have a proven interest in combating racism and hate speech. Here some photos (click on image to view album):
The stakeholders were invited to sit around a table and share their experiences, concerns and inspirational ideas to the others. The aim was to provide inspiration for the organization of the workshops with SB and young people in 2020, and to create connections with and amongst the stakeholders.
Prior to the seminar, participants were individually asked to focus on a specific subjects, in order to cover the different macro areas of the HIT project: Human Rights & Hate Speech; Creative campaigning & storytelling; New narratives about migrations; Marketing strategies; Human Rights Youth media campaign & activism.
