General Information: 

Kif Kif is a intercultural youth platform of Flanders (Belgium). The association came into existence with the creation of the website ‘Kif Kif, the intercultural website of Flanders’ (www.kifkif.be), after a rather heavy debate on the topic of integration of migrants in the Flemish press. The objective of the website was then to collect the different opinions and reactions concerning the ongoing debate on the intercultural society in Flanders.
Since this modest start, a lot has changed. In three years time Kif Kif has grown into an organisation with clear objectives and projects, that depends on many volunteers and 2,5 fulltime employees. The yearly budget is now around 160.000 euros, mostly government funding. Kif Kif has lots of collaborations, in 2006 we worked together with no less then 71 different organisations.

Mission and Objectives: 

Kif Kif wants to facilitate an intercultural diversity of voices, to improve the active participation of all citizens in our society, to deconstruct negative and stereotypical discourse and to stimulate critical reflection. For realising these goals, Kif Kif starts from a clear vision: democratic, pluralistic, antiracist and progressive.

Main Projects / Activities: 

First of all, we have our website, the central working instrument of Kif Kif. You can find a lot of different things there: press releases from Kif Kif about a wide range of topics, an overview of our opinions and articles in the mainstream press, the project MediaWatch, an online radio, a forum, our own journalistic productions, a jobsite, opinion articles, mainstream news, alternative news, an online store, … But Kif Kif also organises public debates, expositions, conferences and many other activities on a regular basis.
