TEMA is an independent, European online magazine for pop journalism and photography that addresses a young, engaged readership and aims to bring about cultural change and transformation for a sustainable and collective future in Europe. Shocked by the recent events in Ukraine, the magazine provides a platform to voices that are deeply affected by the terrible war, telling their stories, and helping Europeans to get a more nuanced perspective on the recent events. By asking both Russian and Ukrainian citizens to share their stories on the events, they try to overcome national bubbles and strengthen mutual understanding and support, giving each side a human face and story. This project aims to cover not only what is often lacking in the current news reporting: the personal experience; trying to prevent hate on both sides, that might be built up as a consequence of this war.
