Why are you taking part in europefiction?
Europefiction is like an existing Utopia, it shows, that if we really want to change the world, we can do it. It empowers young people to take the responsibility for their future and to take part in political and artistical processes.
What kind of Europe would you like to live in?
A peaceful europe without borders, open to anyone, democratic, modern, left and liberal. 
Which topic are you working on? Why is this an important concern to Europe?
we as a project want to be an example of how getting to know each other leads to the loss of prejudices, to friendship and collaboration. We want to show that the world can be different, a better place and that it is our responsibility to change something, to take action and to take part in political processes.

Why are you taking part in europefiction?
europefiction is an art project that is not located outside, but directly in society and deals with it. europefiction knows no norm, no routine, nothing is given, everything is negotiated and and recreated. europefiction goes to and across borders, every participant goes to and across borders.
10 theatres, six countries, 150 young people, 150 stories, 150 perspectives. The visualization of exactly this is the starting point of any action within the project.
europefiction is a project that deals with the pressing issues of our time, not just with corrections to the present, but with the feeling that everything could be different. It's about love, about art, about freedom, about ideas, desires and visions. europefiction creates a space that can be everywhere and be understood as a laboratory for the future. A space that is appropriated by those who´re mostly affected. The younger generations. europefiction aims to be participative for and at all levels of the project. Everything that happens in this process is experienced for the first time by all involved.
I´m happy to be a part of this project. I don´t want to be anywhere else. I´m just right in europefiction.
 
What kind of Europe would you like to live in? 
We live in a rapidly changing world.
Not only has the life of each individual become more international, but so have the challenges, and only in this way can they be met. The autonomy of national solution potentials is over. I would like to live in a Europe in which it is clear to everyone, that everything that each individual does or does not do has an effect not only on the edge of his plate but on the big structure and thus leads to the reproduction of the present or can mean change.
I want to live in a Europe that stands for cultural diversity that unites rather than excludes, and that shows itself in all areas of life and in all the arts. I want to live in a Europe where young people can shape more and have more influence on essential things. I want to live in a Europe where not everthing is crushed by the supposed mask of experience.
