THE PROJECT IN SUMMARY

Training young migrants in the artistic and technical aspects of the performance arts.

THE PROJECT IN DETAIL

Objectives

To offer pathways for inclusion, welcome and integration of young migrants and second-generation youth through training in the artistic and technical aspects of the performance arts; to foster meetings between new migrants and second-generation Italians in order to accelerate integration for the former and contact with their origins for the latter.

Beneficiairies

15 youth between the ages of 14 and 35, asylum seekers, political refugees, unaccompanied minors and second-generation Italians living in social disadvantage who want to undertake training to learn about work in the performance arts.

Activities

The project foresees the realization of integrated artistic workshops (theatre, dance and music) and those dedicated to the technical aspects of theatre work, with the active participation of the young members of the Migrants Theatre Company-Amunì as actors, as well as new members.

The aim is to put on a study-performance and/or one or more performances organized in intensive monthly sessions (concentrated in 4/5 days for 5/6 hours daily), to be intensified during the final phase (foreseen for June 2020) to 15/20 consecutive days of 7/8 hours each.

The beneficiaries will receive a symbolic scholarship as recognition of their efforts (to the expense of other activities) and the quality of the time requested of them. This aspect has an ethical value from a social, cultural and professional point of view as it allows the participants to consider the Amunì project as training for professional ends.
