MODIFYING AREA is a place to explore progressive, alternative projects in the arts, culture, and politics.
It is a combination of just listening, questioning, and learning more about our current state. We’re all coming from different backgrounds, are different socialized, and are in different stages of our lives. It is easy to make mistakes, misunderstand each other, stuck in our minds. But we can also learn from each other and grow together as a bigger community.
Die 3. und letzte Folge für diesen Sommer beschäftigt sich mit dem Thema Seenotrettung. Dafür habe ich mit Axel Steier, Mitgründer des Vereins MISSION LIFELINE über die aktuelle Lage an den EU-Außengrenzen inmitten von COVID-19 gesprochen und wie es möglich ist aktiv zu helfen.
