Idea Sketch | Proposal

Proposal

Idea pitch

Can the arts, actually contribute to social integration and well-being of different communities, living in a rural and multicultural context of contemporary Europe? Our project aims to bring together young people, professionals, artists and researchers towards a shared goal: build a theatre performance reflecting everyday lives, dreams and aspirations of different cultures. Thanks to this polyphonic context, the participants become contributors of a common, creative and inclusive heritage.

Where will your idea take place?

ROCCASTRADA - TUSCANY - ITALY

Why does Europe need your idea?

Our first challenge is sharing life experiences to promote the intercultural dialogue and to increase the well-being of young people living in a multicultural society, improving their cultural creativity and self-confidence. A further challenge is assisting and supporting young people to discover (as researchers) and valorise the migration experience of their families. With such living matter, using theatre and audio-visuals arts, they become artists: revealing a new, hidden local history.

What is your impact?

The project aims to organise a solid cooperation among people, professionals, artists in a multidisciplinary and open space. The main target is to bring together different languages and experiences as a living heritage and to create the best conditions to improve individual and social expressions.The final product will be a theatre performance to be shared with the local community and deliver audio-visual creative products to promote this experience and international dialogue.

How do you get there?

We plan to work step by step. A first step will promote a collective dynamic research. The second step will consider the individual and family stories, ideas and visions, as contents for the theatre performance. The third step will bring the participants to a direct contribution in the writing of the scenarios for the common performance, but also to choose different ways to produce audio-visual documents. The final step will be the living performance and the web site, with some audio-visual productions.

What is your story?

-

Who are you doing it for?

The project aims to have a positive impact, at the local scale, on families and people of the municipality of Roccastrada, with a focus on migrants coming from Macedonia, Albania, Romania, Pakistan, and Morocco: the main countries represented in this Italian municipality today. But on a larger scale, the project aims to improve the intercultural dialogue and the well-being of people living in contemporary rural Europe.

What makes your idea stand apart?

Our idea will work in a very concrete and embodied modality. The specificity and strength of the project is the creative process of “heritage making” as a living heritage and the empowerment of different competences, actors and stakeholders: civil society, professionals, researchers, artists, students. This project is innovative due to the involvement of different stakeholders, narrators and participants who are the actors and producers of a living common history.
