Two creative workshops in urban art for 20 youths living in the Ostia Ponente neighborhood, a high-risk area in the city of Rome.
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
To strengthen the technical, creative, relational, cognitive and civic competencies of the beneficiaries; to undertake an artistic regeneration of an urban area returned to collective use with street art and land art; to promote the recognition on the part of the educational community of the rights of minors to active, full and knowledgeable participation in the cultural life of the territory.
20 youths between the ages of 11-15 who live in the Ostia Ponente area in extreme social marginalization (minors with special educational needs, disabilities, flunking regularly, learning disabilities and foreign minors).
The project foresees the undertaking of two creative workshops weekly in urban and land art for six months (each once a week for two hours for a total of 50 hours of workshops), conducted by expert arteducators.
The project is part of a public/private network (scholastic institutions, public cultural entities and the volunteer sector) active for several years now and recognized in a “Territorial Pact”: a community educational pact that recognizes in educational processes the ideal means to create fostering, stimulating and inclusive environments. Affabulazione has been working for more than 20 years integrating artistic activities with educational endeavours, with the aim of building communities with bottom-up and top-down participation and cooperation between informal stakeholders and like-minded institutions. In particular, the aim is to repurpose the “wider courtyard” around the ex-summer camp Vittorio Emanuele, adjacent to the Lido di Ostia Theatre and the Elsa Morante city library, currently used today mostly as a car park. By renovating and reanimating this space, it can become a centre of cultural activity in the area.
The workshops will focus on indoor training in technical abilities (in school or in a youth or cultural centre), a scouting phase to learn about street art and urban art in the area, and a phase creating murals and land art in the public spaces of the neighborhood. The two workshops will interact in order to develop a circular, integrated knowledge of the related techniques and competencies with the aim of regenerating a neglected space and returning it to the community.
