Understanding Vienna means understanding all the cultures that make up this diverse city. Vienna is home to people from over 180 nations. Metropole gives them a voice.

Over 570,000 Viennese have non-Austrian citizenship. Over 770,000 Viennese were born abroad or have parents who moved here from elsewhere – that’s a higher share than in New York City!

 Starting this fall, we embark on the new reporting project “Home Is Where the Herz Is” to give a voice to the 10 largest communities who have made Vienna home. 

 We’re looking for journalists, storytellers & influencers from the following communities in Vienna:

Serbian, Turkish, German, Polish, Bosnian & Herzegovinian, Romanian, Hungarian, Croatian, Syrian and Bulgarian communities in Vienna.

In turn, we will focus on each community in a stand-alone print publication, with videos, livestreams, online articles, on social media, at events with delicious food and much more.

This content will come from young Viennese journalists with ties to these communities, supported and guided by the Metropole team.
