The future goes beyond technology developments. It also means a change in the social environment. Migration, as a broad topic is an item on every country’s agenda. In this episode we introduce you to the “Voices of Migration” festival as well as an architecture student seeking to improve integration in the district of Brabrand.
The Voices of Migration festival aims to make change on the topic of migration through literature and arts. But that’s easier said than done when it comes to a difficult and politically-charged topic. Reporter Lisa Urlbauer talks to the organizers and participants about taking on this challenge.
Anyana Zimmermann, an architecture student originally from Berlin, is currently researching Gellerup, a neighborhood in the district of Braband located in the western part of the Aarhus municipality. It is known for its high crime rate and social problems. But Zimmerman believes better urban planning could improve conditions for the neighborhood.
