The “Staring at Goats” project will feature a Spring School, which will take place in Mühlhausen, Germany from 06.03. – 13.03.2019.


“History does not repeat, but it often rhymes.” – Mark Twain (attrib.)

The project aims to counter today’s surge of revisionist, far-right political movements by developing and conducting a campaign that combines modern tools and methods of the No Hate Speech Movement with history education.

Over the course of 13 events and an online campaign in Croatia, Estonia, Germany, Greece and Portugal, the project will showcase how propaganda and scapegoating have been used over the course of the past century to vilify minorities and influence the course of history in ways that have and continue to cause harm.


During the Spring School, from March 6th – 13th, 45 participants from the EU will develop and create the project’s online campaign that will include feature images, online comics and video material.

The Spring School will consist of two phases, the first focusing on the historical background and methods of history education, and the second on the creation of different material for the campaign. It will be conducted by a team of project managers, facilitators and artists from the five partner organisations.
