The In&Out methodology needs to be disseminated!
Check below the events organized under the In&Out project.
Presentation of In&Out project in Borgo San Lorenzo
On 15th of December 2017, in Borgo San Lorenzo (Italy) we presented the In&Out: Youth and migrants integration through culture and volunteering Project during the Xmas Party of Progetto Kontatto organized with Beecom. Lots of people shared enthusiasm and new ideas! Thanks everyone for coming!
Social inclusion through art: introducing In&Out in Palermo
An evening full of artistic performance, discussions and new ideas.
Friday 23rd March 2018, from 18:00 at the oratory of Santa Chiara (Palermo) took place the first public event of In&Out project.
The initiative was open to all young people, social workers and all those interested in the social inclusion of young people through non-formal education methodologies. Discussions, artistic performances and presentations of new training opportunities for young people and youth workers were scheduled during the evening.
We counted on the participation of the European partners involved in the project, coming from Guadeloupe, Spain, Sweden and Italy, who shared their experiences in the youth field as well as presenting and experimenting some of their intervention and methodologies in non-formal education.
In collaboration with other associations and projects active in the local and international field, the evening was full of sharing moments:
- Presentation of the “In & Out” project Dance and theatre performances by the participants in the Ragazzi Harraga project: specifically addressed to young migrant who arrive alone, supporting them in the construction and implementation of their life project, through active and interactive methodologies that bring out and strengthen their skills and competences.
- Presentation of the new cultural association “Niofar” founded by young people involved in the Ragazzi Harraga workshops.
Presentation of the group rap from Palermo Bakku ndal
- Multi-ethnic refreshment provided by Moltivolti
This event closed the international training course of the In&Out project, which took place in Palermo from 19th to 25th March and involved 20 participants from all partner countries.
Raspberry Jam In&Out edition
Heavy beats and funky moves were totally filling up the room when around a hundred people got together for the street dance battle Raspberry Jam In&Out edition. What an atmosphere! In the breakdance battle, there were 12 teams competing against each other and the concurrence was tough. In the end Mumtaz Duran and Robin Johansson from Stockholm managed to convince the judges that they were the top team and win the whole thing.
The event was a fun occasion for people from the Stockholm area, as well as other parts of Sweden to get together and dance. It was a way to share experiences and perhaps learn from each other. Besides that, Dancers Without Borders could tell people more about the In&Out project and how dance and culture can be a tool for integration and youth work. We also had our international partners there from the other In&Out organizations, which we’re very happy about.
Dancers Without Borders is looking forward to organizing another multiplier event through the In&Out project and hope to see as many people there again!
CONFERENCE "FILM THE URBAN LANDSCAPE AS A MULTICULTURAL EXPERIENCE".
The SAGAS Department of the University of Florence has launched, on the basis of the University Strategic Project CAPUT - Filming the Arts and Plan of Excellence Cultural Heritage, the research project Filming Otherness.
The conference intends to investigate the relationship between audiovisual production and landscape to understand how members of the local community live together and they share the urban space, above all the less represented by the media and less crossed by the tourist flows (the suburbs). The intent is to question the dominant representation of migrants in traditional media and to develop a reflection around a possible alternative story.
Beecom was present at the conference, with an intervention, Tuesday 22 in the "Practices" section, to present the "Photo-Safari: Looking for Cultural Footprints" workshop created for the European project "In & Out".
A breakdance battle in the middle of the city in the middle of the day? No entrance fee and open to everyone who wants to dance or just watch? Yes, of course! This was one of Dancers Without Border’s multiplier events during the In&Out project. It was a great occasion to gather an eager group of dancers from different cities and countries, together with other stakeholders and people just passing by, and let them know about the project.
Let the games begin! There were 20 battlers in the start but in the end, there could only be two: Loi Xuan Ly from UK and Torbjörn Brunvand from Norway. Actually, there was a tie in their final round and the two had to meet each other in a game of chess in order to select the winner. This time Loi Xuan Ly was crowned as the winner of Betongfighten. What a day!
And what an evening! We ended with a celebration party in a hidden tunnel, where the highlight was a brilliant flamenco performance in silence. Only the performer’s clapping, stomping and singing, along with the audience’s occasional breathing could be heard. We all got goosebumps.
