The "Tell your own story" project was launched in April 2020 during the lockdown period. Unable to organise any events anymore, Imani Organisation had to adapt to this situation and reinvent itself.

The launch of the "Tell your own story" seemed an obvious choice at a time when the world was going through a very complicated period. Indeed, social networks enabled us to seemingly regain "normality" at a time when we were living in forced isolation. They not only allowed us to interact with the outside world, to share our fears, doubts and frustrations, but also helped to express our support to healthcare professionals, etc.

That's when we really became aware of the importance and impact of social media and we wanted to use this tool to have a positive impact on people.

The "Tell your own story" project began as a series of "lives" organised on the Instagram platform, inviting people to share their stories. Seeing how much this concept was appreciated, we decided to take it a step further.

It was therefore decided to film the interviews professionally so that they could be broadcasted on different platforms and reach a wider audience.

One of the aims of these interviews is to deconstruct certain prejudices and stereotypes in Luxembourgish society, despite its reputation for diversity, multiculturalism and tolerance. diversity, multiculturalism and tolerance, in order to tackle societal issues without taboos, to compensate the lack of representation in the Luxembourgish media, to create a safe, caring space for people to share their stories, and to inspire, especially young, people.

The first episode of "Tell your own Story" was dedicated to a cause we feel very strongly about; the fight against breast cancer. We began with a campaign to raise awareness of the disease throughout the month of October 2020, at the end of which we shared the story of a woman and her fight against this disease.

We then responded to an open call entitled "Cliché I- société en migration", financed by the by the Oeuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte.

As part of this call, we were able to produce 6 episodes in which we addressed the following themes: trans-identity, racism in schools and the workplace, domestic violence, bullying at school and lack of its thematisation in the media, and the deconstruction of stereotypes and roles attributed to men.
