RESEARCH // 2016-2017

In 2016-2017 a fellowship of volunteers, journalists, artists, academics and activists from Ghent visited and thoroughly documented sixty grassroots and civil society organisations during research trips all over Europe, in search for hopeful discourses, methods and practices to counter the present-day upsurge of Euroscepticism and defeatist perceptions of crisis.
