Get to know the newcomers, activists and volunteers we met in Athens, Berlin and London, as they share their personal experiences of refuge, welcome and the digital city.
I first came to The Unmentionables because one of my friends told me there were free showers. I've only been in Athens for five months but I found friends in this place, so I prefer to spend my time here. I especially like the art therapy class with Maria. When you’re busy drawing, you forget things.
Now I call this place 'our' centre because I found a space here for myself. After a while, the staff asked me if I wanted to volunteer to be a translator. So, it’s like... things are moving… step by step.
