Infomobile

Hartino Karavi is Greek for “paper boat”. It is a metaphor for what we want to create and for the situation of refugees and migrants in Greece. The paper boat is a folded boat able to swim – for a while. Then you have to build a new one to go on travelling. A paper boat is symbolic for the journey of life, vulnerable but in your own hands and to be recreated again and again. It is simple, but it carries many hopes and dreams. It can dance on a turbulent sea. It belongs to everybody. And it might become the small version – like a first draft – of a welcome-island.


The Infomobile is a project of mobile information exchange with migrants and refugees, information for, from and about them and networking with local, national and international structures of resistance. It is a grassroots initiative with a small group of people working on it permanently and a changing group of individuals adding to the Tour Teams. It is based on solidarity and the antiracist struggle for equal rights, ‘freedom of movement’ and the belief that ‘no one is illegal’! We fight for a world without borders. The Infomobile visits hubs of migration in Greece, such as currently Patras, Igoumenitsa, Evros and Athens but also outside of Greece in neighbouring countries.

The Infomobile is an open and self-organised space in motion of and for refugees, migrants and all people interested in exchange and encounters. It is a space of freedom and solidarity, of communication and information, a space to find access to information and knowledge and a secure living-room for those whose residence is insecure. In short is a space of encounter between people, ideas and plans. It is an antiracist space not affiliated to any specific political group or party. It aims to focus on the problems and needs of refugees in a pragmatic way of direct support, political intervention and by raising public awareness.
