The realization of a video-making workshop with young inmates to deal with complex themes in a free, non-conforming way.
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
To strengthen the offer of training inside prisons for the younger inmates focusing on the acquisition of new competencies and favouring experiences with the group; offering youths the chance to consider a stimulating professional reality, learning through practical internships and direct workshop experience; getting youths used to diversity and weakening stereotypes connected with the prison reality in order to familiarize them with the complex reality of prison.
10 adolescent inmates at the “Ferrante Aporti” Juvenile Penal Institute in Turin, an exclusively male prison for inmates between the ages of 14 and 25.
Dear is a non-profit organization that has been aiming to humanize institutions since 2016 via creative projects. Since 2016, it has been conducting the Robo&Bobo project, an innovative didactic-workshop on programming, digital fabrication, electronics and digital graphics aimed at introducing adolescent and pre-adolescent youths to the world of new technologies.
The project, supported by AMI, involves the realization of a video-making workshop composed of 10 meetings. The youth involved are guided in the creation of video clips, learning both how to direct and edit the material produced working singularly or in small groups, to then put the individual contributions together in a group product.
The project aims to give value to video-making as an instrument for personal narrative and to discuss complex themes in a free, non-conforming way. Learning how to express oneself and understanding each person’s history is important both for the individual and for the group and helps in the acquisition of self-esteem.
In 2018, in partnership with AMG, AMI supported that year’s Robo&Bobo edition (Link) of the HanaHana project, which consisted of the development of an original version of the award-winning opera in virtual reality of the Swiss Mélodie Mousset, HanaHana, with the young patients of the pediatric oncology ward of the Margherita Children’s Hospital in Turin.
