The project ‘Image of people without legal residence’ in the media is a collaboration between ZIN TV, Samenlevingsopbouw Brussel/project Meeting and Pigment vzw. From the observation that the image of ‘people without legal residence’ in the media is often negative and incomplete, these 3 organizations joined forces. The current portrayal of people without legal residence contributes to the structural stigmatization of this extremely fragile group; hence the importance of changing this.
The intention was to organize a public event in the spring of 2020 to introduce the publication to as wide an audience as possible. Workshops would be held where the core group that participated in the project would discuss their findings with interested parties and where experts would shed their light on the theme of image creation. However, the Corona crisis threw a spanner in the works. Out of necessity, we will send the publication out into the world through a digital presentation on December 18, 2020, the International Day of the Migrant.
