 ARE WE EUROPE


is an independent media that (re)discovers our ever-changing continent. While headlines obsess over borders, we reach across them. They publish stories with local perspectives, the ones that help figure out what it means to share a continent. Decolonisation, sports and identity, or queer life; each of their magazines is built around a theme. If it matters to you, it matters to them.

FADA


is a collective of journalists, photographers, video makers, independent and precarious authors who document, narrate and witness our world. They cover human rights, the environment, migration, civil society and minorities. They focus on people's stories because we believe that stories have a meaningful impact and can inspire change.
