Participation in the Fifteenth Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean October

In the context of the XV Biennale de la Méditerranée, Symβiosis offered a Painting Workshop during October 2011

The workshop examined the ways migrants’ and minorities’ artistic creations were inspired by their experience of migration and/or discrimination, and how such experiences could, in turn, facilitate, and allow for migrants to contribute to practices as dynamic social actors (educators, students), and not solely as objects of instruction or research.

The workshop also explored the potential of migrants in building bridges and facilitating the encounters between different populations sharing the same neighbourhood. In particular, it highlighted popular and creative arts as a vehicle of fostering communication and dialogue between different groups sharing the same culture and neighbourhood.
