Cardiff, One Year Later – Part 2

Who would have ever thought that for once an international media would have followed the needs of migrants and let them talk. Today we took part to something extraordinary: a gathering of 40 among Welsh and African people in the Butetown History and Arts Center in Cardiff, all united by the will of learning more about each other and discuss issues such as: inclusion, integration, being Welsh (that turned out to be a matter of whether you follow rugby or not).

As for (IN)VISIBLE CITIES we couldn’t help but to intervene and defend the importance of build a mutual integration process, a conversation. And ours today were pretty much about what we did in the last year of our lives: travel from Cardiff to New York, self funded and looking to give a new image to migrants. And it’s being awesome so far!
