Local Activities II

Local Activities II: Guatemala

In Guatemala, Local Activ­i­ties II of the project were imple­ment­ed in March 2022 and more than 30 young peo­ple, urban artists and pro­fes­sion­als in the field of youth took part. Dur­ing the work­shops, they could iden­ti­ty and reflect on the caus­es and con­se­quences of migrant through an exchange of expe­ri­ences with the facil­i­ta­tors and the rest of the group. They raised also their empa­thy and aware­ness on the top­ic. In par­tic­u­lar, they were able to under­stand that this sit­u­a­tion is more than a phe­nom­e­non; it is a real­i­ty in Guatemala and must be treat­ed empa­thet­i­cal­ly. It was also very inter­est­ing to check that par­tic­i­pants could learn new words in dif­fer­ent lan­guages and could exper­i­ment and prac­tice dif­fer­ent ele­ments of the hip hop cul­ture. A rap son that has been cre­at­ed includ­ing key words on migrant was one of the results of the work­shops that fas­ci­nat­ed all par­tic­i­pants. Every­thing was then pre­sent­ed in front of the local pop­u­la­tion and every­one was very fas­ci­nat­ed with the results and inter­est­ed in par­tic­i­pat­ing in sim­i­lar activ­i­ties in the future, includ­ing Eras­mus+ projects.
