Migration affects not only migrants but also the communities of origin. Migration exists both in the past and in the present. According to the 2020 World Migration Report analysis of the International Organization for Migration, the number of immigrants worldwide has increased to 272 million, reaching 3.5 % of the world population. It shows that more than half of the refugees worldwide with 114 million live in Europe and North America, thanks to the level of development that the European Union has come from economically and socially. Although there were increases and decreases in the migration graph over time, migration continued to be a continuous phenomenon between countries. The drama, tragedies, troubles and tears of migration from the past to the present are talked about. We advise humanity, who has migrated for thousands of years, to close the doors, not to see or hear. However, now we must focus on the beauties of migration, talk about its contributions to our lives, and remember its spirit. We have to explain the emotion of migration, its art, how it unites people and how it enriches civilizations. We should focus on what a good engineer, a good doctor, a good artist, a skilled worker adds to our lives, we should not be afraid of our own truth, we should believe in our humanity. Since migration has existed for thousands of years and it has contributed to our lives, let’s put aside the dramas and pains of migration and tell the beauties of migration, its contribution to culture and art, with art, let’s tell the stories of European migration with art, let’s make folk songs and films. Let’s take the first step from here.
