Mission House of journalists
To flee. To give up one’s job. To live uprooted, in precariousness. To face the unknown. To endure the hostility of some, the obstacles of the administration. To wait to be able to rebuild again. To wait. It is all the complexity of this singular journey that is exile.
A space-time where dreams collapse in the face of the brutality of reality. For that reason, we strive to be attentive, to support, to anticipate difficulties, to provide solutions, to manage frustrations, to act with respect for the rights and dignity of each individual. This is one of the aspects of supporting refugees, our daily mission.
Thank you to all who support us, to all those who believe in the usefulness of our mission.
Parmi les journalistes exilés, il y a aussi des photographes qui ont parfois été au coeur des conflits.
Parmi les journalistes exilés, il y a aussi des acricaturistes comme Bilal Daggezen
Support the Maison des Journalistes
Give a donation to the Maison des Journalistes -MDJ-, it is a commitment to respect freedom of the press and expression in France and in the World, and concretely it is:
→ Guarantee the reception and lodging of at least 14 male and female journalists in the premises of the Maison des Journalistes in Paris for an average stay of 10 months.
→ Encourage the social and administrative support of these media professionals during all the steps necessary to apply for political asylum in France.
→ Renvoyé Spécial, le programme of meetings with journalists from the MDJ, witnesses of the oppression occurring in all four corners of the earth, in order to raise awareness, especially the youth, of the importance of the freedom of expression and of democratic values.
→ reinforce the range of cultural, linguistic and professional activities that punctuate the lives of MDJ residents and encourage their integration into French society for a new life (free French classes, discovery of heritage and French institutions, visits by media partners, journalistic workshops, etc.).
→ support the large-scale cultural projects initiated by the MDJ journalists who cultivate freedom of expression in all its forms (Waiting exhibition in partnership with the City Council of the tenth arrondissement of Paris; the exhibition journal D’Ici in collaboration with Magnum Photo agency in 2019).
→ open L’Oeil de la Maison des journalistes, the online journal of the association, which offers current and former residents a space to exercise their freedom to inform.
