What does Europe mean to the Iranian diaspora?
Over 900 Iranians in Western Europe shared their experience as a migrant in our research project “The Role and Identity of the Iranian Diaspora in Western Europe”. In 2018, we then invited members of the Iranian community in Western Europe to participate in Phase II of our research and share their stories in their own perspectives, which came together in a short film titled “Tales of Belonging”.
We are happy to now share “Tales of Belonging”, produced by Impact Storytelling and the Simorgh, on our platform. Through stories, we share some of the challenges and struggles felt by Iranian migrants, how they learnt to overcome challenges in their new home and what integration looks like to them.
We introduced the short film on the 28 November 2018 during our storytelling workshop in Vienna. The Simorgh will continue this project of storytelling and identity through different media in 2019.
