Programme: Europe for Citizens
Identifier: 569297-CITIZ-1-2015-2-IT-CITIZ-TT
Title: MigrART
Summary
Migrations represent one of the topics of the utmost importance in the current European scenario.Nevertheless, it is not something totally “new”, infact the twinning between Scandiano and Tubize, that dates back to 1975, was signed to allow the Italian emigrants (who went to Belgium to work in the mines and in the heavy industry) to keep a link with their roots.Thank to this project we are going to investigate the topic of integration/marginalization of newcomers in our cities and how different cultures may interact. We will do it in a “non-conventional” way, that is using art - meaning in all its forms of expression - as a tool to represent situations, places, behaviours, and so forth, as art is a “universal channel” able to overcome stereotype and (possible) language barriers.During the meeting, within the frame of themed workshops (arranged in suitable places and with proper equipment), the citizens of the participating countries will be asked to observe and “report” – by painting, drawing, filming, etc. - what they see (pertaining the project subject) from their own perspective.At a second stage, the material produced will be re-organized and used as an input for reflection and discussion, first in small groups and then in plenary session.Being a European citizens’ meeting, the activities proposed will be “accessible” to everybody, that is not too complex, and the artistic “languages” can be:• Photography/video making;• Painting;• Music;• Literature/poetry/story-telling;• Cuisine.By doing so, we aim at creating a sort of empathy between “locals” and “newcomers” and a fruitful comparison among European citizens coming from several countries.
