// DURING THE FIRST “DIGITAL MIGRATION”,
A PROJECT ADDRESSED TO UNACCOMPANIED REFUGEE MINORS
THAT USES THE TECHNOLOGICAL REVOLUTION
TO FOSTER INTEGRATION //
// WHAT IS RE-FUTURE?
Re-future introduces a new approach to cultural integration concerning a specific type of migrants, the Unaccompanied Refugee Minors that arrive in Europe.
During an intense year of training on video literacy, the URM, using their smartphone cameras, learn a more mindful approach to the use of videos and a deeper observation of the reality around them.
Through the universal language of images, they will recount their story from their point of view.
\\ Their videos will become a documentary film and through their eyes we will discover their life and the meaning they give to the word integration.
\\ A scholarly research, based on the evaluation of the video materials produced during the workshop, will focus on how the observation of reality and the use of images can stimulate and help the integration path.
\\ After the workshop, different events and roundtables will be organized, focusing on the URM cultural integration path through the legal guardianing practice.
