Hello, I am Mheadeen Kadora, Palestinian of origin, born in Syria, stateless, I grew up in Syria and received my education until I got a degree in information engineering, currently, I am in Germany to complete my education and obtain a master's degree.
My name is Moussa Mbarek and I fled Libya more than five years ago and have been living in Dresden ever since. I am Tuareg and come from Ubari, an oasis region in the southwest of Libya.
My goal was always to study. Between my desire to become an engineer or to study art stood my origins. Like many other Tuareg, I have no citizenship in the country where I was born. This heritage determines my life, also here in Europe.
When the conflicts in Libya made a normal life so unbearable that you could be shot by the rival militias at any time and your wages were not enough to survive, I made my way to Europe.
Here I fight for an open society with the means of art and the mediation of cultural diversity. A central point of my exhibitions is the topic of statelessness. This artistic approach has often succeeded in drawing people's attention to this issue and developing an understanding for the necessity of political action.
Statefree was founded in 2021 with the mission of building a community of belonging and empowering stateless people. Statefree, initiated and led by Christiana Bukalo, a stateless woman born in Germany, has become the ﬁrst German non-proﬁt dedicated to the topic of statelessness and now centres their work around three pillars: community, visibility and equal rights. In 2021 Statefree launched an online community platform community.statefree.world and since then has been hosting live and online community events in which stateless people and their allies can connect and share their experiences. Through community-engaged art, communication and media Statefree also osters visibility and awareness of the issue of statelessness in the public sphere. Narratives around statelessness are thereby reshaped, making sure the voices of those affected by statelessness are ampliﬁed. Since true empowerment of stateless people is only possible if they have access to rights, Statefree has expanded its work to the realm of political advocacy in the German political sphere.Statefree website
Trixiewiz e.V. is a migrant and feminist organisation committed to creating sustainable forms of solidarity in a society shaped by migration. We see ourselves as a space for collaborative networking where we can develop new and effective forms of transnational political participation. To do so, we organise emancipatory projects in which migrants (particularly women*) are treated not simply as audience members, but, above all, as experts in their own right. Through political, cultural, and educational programmes for people who have experienced migration and/or flight, we develop participatory strategies to combat racism and discrimination and initiate processes of self-empowerment.Trixiewiz e.V. website
