'HAYMATLOS': Support a (post)migrant literature project!

by:Deniz Zehra Tavli

As post-migrant activists, Tamer and Taudy launched the project „KANAKISTAN„in 2016, organizing an event series that brings together artists of multiple backgrounds and disciplines in Erfurt (Thuringia/Germany) to discuss (post)migrant perspectives, racism, art and culture and to make these perspectives visible.

Now the project is about to publish a (post)migrant poetry book called „HAYMATLOS“ (meaning „homeless“). In January 2018, Taudy and Tamer launched a call to send in poems addressing racism, discrimination, migration, family histories, right extremism, (post) migrant and other perspectives. Many poems were sent in and a selection of them will be published in a poetry book by the left political publishing network „edition assemblage„.

To be able of financing the printing costs, the activists of KANAKISTAN still need support. For this reason a Crowdfundig campaign was established on the platform „Startnext„.

Feel encouraged to donate and support this creative and important project, raising awareness for (post)migrant perspectives not only for Germany-based migrants, but many diasporic communities all over the globe!
