BBB goes at the Gas Museum, Athens with the screening: Women and Labour/ Youth and Labour 17&18/5/2020

BBB celebrates the International Day of Museums participating at the event of the Gas Museum on Sunday, 17  and Monday, 18 of May. The event has as title: «Inclusion for all». For this reason, the museum organized an online event, due to the circumstances of COVID-19, with a series of online interactive activities.

The screening Youth and Labour / Women and Labour sheds light upon the issues that women and youth face nowadays in the labour market. Through these stories we will meet characters who are forced to leave their country, persons who are experiencing exploitation and oppression at work or facing with dilemmas. These stories depict characters who absorb the political and economic problems of our time and struggle to survive in a harsh environment trying to achieve their goals.
