The Agora is based on the essential idea as the name implies: It's a central public space.
In this podcast series, we introduce you to some inspiring individuals that contribute to Berlin’s multicultural life. You will meet some people from the GSBTB community, but also other Berliners who have a story to tell. You will get to know grassroots initiatives where migrants and refugees are actively engaged in making our city more open, diverse, and inclusive.
Not only do they make a difference in others’ lives, they also shape the everyday urban scene of Berlin, the city we love and live in.
In the Agora podcast, we focus on the impact of migration on the urban level and develop innovative practices that effect people’s lives, both in the day-to-day and in the long term. We introduce you to people from our diverse community, people whose work have inspired us, and change-makers who promote change and growth in the city we live in, Berlin.
Our guests join us to talk about their stories, struggles, concerns, talents, and aspirations. We ask our guests what they have learned from giving back to the society. Discussions provide insights into issues ranging from human rights, diversity, and education to migrant identity and belonging in relation to Europe. Let us take you through a journey to Berlin’s social and cultural life and beyond!
We are always looking for friendly, passionate and patient guests who can share with us the details of their work. We are interested in meeting people who run or take part in migrant initiatives that make a difference in others’ lives. We have a lovely team that will work to make you comfortable and help you reach a wider audience. Get in touch with us at email@example.com and we can discuss more!
