New city / new context

Expectations vs reality – first impressions about Europeans and European cities, fairy-tales and disappointments


(Possible) questions for the refugees:
What did you expect to see/encounter in Europe?

How was it in reality? Is Europe a fairy-tale?

Does it live up to your expectations?

(Possible) topic/questions for the non-refugees:

What do you think that refugees expect to find/see in Europe?

Can you step under their skin, and look at your city through their glasses and imagine that you are coming to a (your?) city for the first time. What do you expect?
