Ekō Magazine: The Spoken Archive, as part of RAAH. Fest


Ekō magazine was founded as a social and political platform for storytelling and creativity. 


It is a means of exercising freedom of expression and bringing together the voices of migrants, refugees, asylum seekers, volunteers and activists within the wider community. 


By facilitating conversation and storytelling, ekō magazine encourages reflection on ideas and assumptions surrounding common social injustices, primarily the so-called ‘refugee crisis’. 


We, at ekō magazine, believe that the opportunity to share stories is beneficial in so far as it gives voice to those who would otherwise go voiceless and it educates those of which only understand a limited portion of the reality of what is happening as a result of those injustices.
