Migration pressure increases. Messages of fear and hate multiply and normalize.

It becomes urgent to counteract them with actions that remind us that solidarity and tolerance are fundamental for peaceful coexistence.

WELCOME is a long embrace that does not discriminate.
The people portrayed are Swiss and foreign citizens, all of them with a life story related to migration.

Some of them are the result of a love story, some others are the protagonists of it. Some others are engaged professionally or personally with migration issues.

They are the human lanscape of this part of the world. This is the society we celebrated on 01.08.2017, Switzerland’s national day.
