We are producing a magazine with journalists from East and West Europe. We ask Activate Europe's support to start debates and stimulate understanding about what divides and unites us. We plan to travel, with our brand new magazine, to Berlin, Budapest, Ghent, Amsterdam, Athens and Warsaw. Leaving a trail of exhibitions and thoughts, we hope to connect people on the basis of good journalism, empathy and storytelling.

The essence of democracy is debate. Today’s Europe must get rid of stereotypes and instead create a culture of communication and respect. By travelling the EU together with an exhibition, thinkers and artists, our magazine will create a fruitful basis for meetings and future collaborations.
By organising workshops and exchanges around Europe, we aim to inspire people. We strongly believe that Nestor’s Journey can be a starting point for future collaborations between the participants. We succeed once we bridge misunderstandings and create common European goals.
Nestor’s Journey starts after the first launching event in the Belgian city of Ghent in May 2018. Up to then we reach out to partner organisations, hosts, panel guests, exhibition and event venues from and in Germany, Hungary and Warsaw. We create new social media profiles for the project which will help us to gain attention and participants. In autumn 2018 we go on a tour with our magazine Nestor.
We are a European collective of storytellers who love cross border collaboration. We closely follow European debates and are shocked by their stereotypes. Nestor explains East Europe to our readers. ‘Nestor’s Journey’ takes our project to another level by confronting Europeans with their own perspec
We organise our magazine’s tour for EU citizens who want to exchange their ideas on a common European future and who believe that debating is a necessary step towards mutual understanding and collaboration. Our target audience challenges its own views and potentially starts own projects.
Our project aims eye-opening exchange and we hope to also find it within the community. We appreciate any feedback related to our plans: What stubborn stereotypes is the community still occupied with? Which debates does Europe need? Does anybody know potential collaboration partners?
