THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
To enhance the work carried out at the Airola and Catanzaro juvenile detention facilities via art, and replicate best practice in other IPMs (Quartucciu and Acireale). To enable the youths to acquire or rebuild their dignity and increase their faith in themselves
Approximately 46 minors involved in the juvenile penitentiaries workshops in Airola (Benevento) and Catanzaro, Cagliari and Acireale (Catania)
CCO has been working in the Airola juvenile penitentiary in the province of Benevento since 2013, carrying out various artistic workshops. In jail, the language and techniques of the arts are instruments to learn team work and, especially, personal and collective responsibility as regards the mafia.
Since 2018, with AMI support, CCO offers the young inmates of the Airola penitentiaries workshops in script writing and musical composition aimed at the production of short films on topics chosen with the beneficiaries.
In 2020, CCO started to create a relationship between the penitentiary and the local community, organizing a festival inside the beautiful theatre of the prison, thus involving all the citizens of Airola and nearby towns. The festival was held in July 2021 and has been organized in collaboration with the Dominio Pubblico Association. The entire process to prepare for the festival was undertaken as a training activity involving the youths in artistic production. In this way, the young inmates are not simply beneficiaries of the festival but the actual organizers. The youth that are part of the script course chose short films to show, while the youth taking the musical composition and theatre course decided what kind of musical and theatrical performance to propose.
In 2022, always with the support of AMI, CCO starts also a rap music laboratory at the Paternostro in Catanzaro on a monthly or bi-monthly basis, always in a 3-day intensive formula.
In 2023, CCO aims to continue and reinforce the workshop they have been carrying out for years in the Airola IPM with a senior and junior rapper (every Friday, all day). Work continues in the Catanzaro IPM to reinforce the team and provide continuity and project development at the local level with a weekly presence in the workshops and the supervision of activities by a senior rapper (twice a year). In the Quartucciu (Cagliari) IPM, the aim is to build a rap and theatre group with a senior rapper, a junior rapper and an actor from the Cada Die Theatre company, with experimentation with activities in an intensive week and the start up of a weekly workshop. Finally, in the Acireale (Catania) IPM, CCO intends to train and accompany a rapper trainer. Here, too, activities will be experimented with during an intensive week and a weekly workshop will be activated
