TRANSFORMING MIGRATION BY ARTS
Migrant numbers are increasing all the time across the world. We believe that performing arts can contribute to transforming and improving the modes of existence of migrants in vulnerable situations in the receiving country or countries.
The TransMigrARTS project intends to set up a Spanish-speaking network of researchers, artists/researchers and cultural enterprises spanning Europe and Latin America. We will use an applied research-creation methodology to observe, assess and model socially innovative artistic workshops where the target communities are integrated as stakeholders.
IN NUMBERS &
The specific scientific aims of this project are to observe, assess, model and run artistic workshops (theatre, dance, clowning, music and performance) that will be transformational on migrants’ vulnerable situations. Our action will thus begin with the development of an observation and assessment tool of artistic workshops, in a multidisciplinary dialogue, to refine and demonstrate its effectiveness.
The observation of practices carried out by our partners with migrants will enable us to model prototype workshops, before rolling them out with associations, institutions, NGOs and even cultural centres. These in vivo experimentations will lead to the dissemination of the research results beyond the scientific community.
