Project: Refugees got Talent
BY: Brenda Waegemaekers, Michael Bien
Country: The Netherlands
Solution: TV format
. & culture .

Refugees are generally seen as one big group of either ‘victims’ or ‘violators’. They are stereotyped and dehumanized. Lifting on the popularity of the globally successful television format, Refugees Got Talent gives refugees a chance to share their unique stories and talents. Refugees Got Talent offers refugees a stage to show their unique, individual talent, while making room for their stories, passions and potential. The show is either a one-time PR stunt, or a TV series of 15 episodes with live shows. But it’s most likely a controversial idea that will provoke stiff discussion, exactly the purpose this project is designed for.
