RVI organizes gatherings in Zagreb, Vienna and Berlin in the beginning of June 2019 (hereinafter: meet-ups). The goal of these meetings is to foster creativity and challenge us to think outside the box; to propose exciting ideas that have never been considered possible and to reimagine the existing public discourse towards topics at the intersection of identity, migration, democracy, human rights, radicalization and violent extremism. During the meeting, we want to discuss your ideas that have a strong potential to be implemented as online (and offline) campaigns, exploring different platforms (social media, blogs and other networking platforms) and formats (photo, video, performance, written content and many others) as well as offline activities which can generate online content and produce impact).

After the meetups, interested participants will have the opportunity to join the RVI. They will receive mentoring, technical and creative support from our team to turn the ideas discussed in the meetups into reality. The interested participants in RVI will co-produce creative content addressing issues at the intersection of identity, migration, democracy, human rights, radicalization and violent extremism, as they play out in the Western Balkan diaspora communities.
