Counter stories by Vagelis Kolotsios

This is an attempt to depict and connect stories of different women, coming from different backgrounds but facing similar challenges and sharing similar dreams and hopes for their future.

On the one hand, in Greece, refugee women live in hotspots surrounded by unknown culture and language. In Palestine, on the otherhand, they are the daughters and grand-daughters of refugees.

If they had the chance to be the authors of their own stories which parts would they choose to share with the world?

Shagaf (Palestine) and The Language Project (Greece) have joined their forces, passion and expertise with the support of Tandem for Culture in an effort to bring their stories to the spotlight, aiming to raise awareness, break stereotypes and represent the common challenges as well as the potential of these refugee women in Greece and Palestine.
