The Origins

In the academic year 2016/17, I was coordinating a student project at the University of Debrecen, Hungary under the aegis of the P2P: Challenging Extremism (later Digital Challenge) international student program. My students created a group called Zerophobia, which organized awareness raising programs against xenophobia, racism, hate-speech throughout the academic year. The programs included an international potluck, a street-art event, and later we also developed an educational workshop specifically for teenagers aiming to raise their awareness of the central role of language and communication. The most successful of our programs, however, were two symphonic concerts (under my musical direction), which we organized as charity events and as a meeting place for members of the local international community. The events proved a success in terms of charity donations as well as artistic value, so both our audience and the participating musicians are eager for us to continue, which we would be happy to do, provided we get proper funding. The concerts last year were funded from the budget of the P2P project, which is no longer available for us.
