 "The most controversial topic is the so-called migrant crisis. After the terror attacks in Brussels many people, again, started blaming migrants. But what we are trying to say is that migration per se is not a problem, it's a symptom of some broader processes," - Nadiya Chushak said commenting on the topics that are going to be discussed at the festival.

"This issue also troubles Ukraine, we have the internally displaced citizens, and we see that many people lack solidarity towards them. We have projects dedicated to helping those who have suffered in the conflict in eastern Ukraine, soldiers too. We think of them as heroes, but we tend to forget they also have problems when they come back to real life here".
