Welcome to MYgration, a new series coming soon to BRAM RADIO.
Together, we're going to meet several people that, for a variety of reasons, left their own countries and came to the Netherlands. For some this could be an ongoing journey — they could become migrants again — and for some … the Netherlands has become a new home. They will be answering the question,“What is MY migration story?” … and we will be listening.
In today’s world, immigrants are increasingly facing problems and are often unwelcome, misunderstood and denied a voice. With this collaboration between the non-profit organisations; Stichting Correspondents of the World, Wijdoenmee, and Stichting Broadcast Amsterdam, we want to explore the large spectrum behind the word “migration”, and the personal stories involved.
Our MYgration project will share the personal stories of six local immigrants in various ways:
- a podcast series where we give our subjects the opportunity to share their stories in their own voice
- publishing written interviews online
- an exhibition (photos + story) in Westerpark, Amsterdam in December 2023 (tbc)
- organising a series of in-person events, tea talks, to explore migration stories
- encouraging further connections

The aim of the ‘MYgration’ project is to provide a positive and realistic image of people with a migration background in Amsterdam or the Netherlands, for people who might have minimal positive understanding or engagement with this community.
“Correspondents of the World’s mission is to strengthen understanding between people, between each other, through the exchange of personal stories. Our working method is based on the assumption that if we show each other our personal side, we are more inclined to understand people who think differently than if we read ‘about’ someone in the newspaper or see it on television.”
