The refugee situation in the near past as well as the intense debate that evolved around it lead to the strengthening of prejudice and the fear of foreigners and even of the anger towards them, in Hungary, furthermore, in whole Europe.The goal of the project was to reduce xenophobia and to help the social integration of migrants, in particular to get accomodation issues into focus and to help solve them. During the project 4 well known person welcomed a migrant living in Hungary in their homes for a few days. They documented the time they shared as a video-diary. Four short videos have been published on youtube. Hopefully these films help the viewers identify themselves both as "host" or "guest" thanks to the personal tone and the celebrities.Furthermore Menedek welcomed those who offered their rent for foreigners and helped their communication with intercultural mediator and social worker.
