Organisator Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation
Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation presents the exhibition Comics for Equality (ComiX4=). You'll see the comics that won the first European awards for best unpublished comics by authors with a migrant background. The exhibition will feature 32 comics collected in three categories - Stereotypes, Fight against racism and Stories of migration. The comics in this exhibition are created by migrants who have experienced difficulties, hate speech, racism, xenophobia and discrimination.
The ComiX4= project aims to foster intercultural dialogue in order to combat racism, xenophobia and discrimination in Europe, with a particular focus on Italy, Bulgaria, Estonia, Romania and Latvia. In order to achieve this aim, the project seeks to involve migrants and second-generation immigrants – often the subjects of discrimination – in the creation of artistic resources – namely comic strips – to be used in combating racism and xenophobia.
