Local Activities II

Local Activities II: Spain

Local Activ­i­ties II have been imple­ment­ed in Spain in two dif­fer­ent venues, both of them in the city of Mala­ga: the work­shops at the Puer­ta Oscu­ra High School and the vis­i­bil­i­ty activ­i­ty at San­ta Bar­bara High School.

Dur­ing the work­shops, par­tic­i­pants, who were young peo­ple, artists and pro­fes­sion­als of local organ­i­sa­tions, could learn about the his­to­ry of hip hop and reflect on the sit­u­a­tion of migrants. Some of the results were a rap song on the top­ic of inclu­sion, a dance to empow­er and increase the self-esteem of par­tic­i­pants and a col­lec­tive graf­fi­ti made by the group, with the sup­port of a graf­fi­ti writer, with an inspir­ing mes­sage for an egal­i­tar­i­an and coop­er­a­tive world. Local and inter­na­tion­al artists could also share their expe­ri­ences and how urban art is a tool for inclu­sion and per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al development.

Con­cern­ing the vis­i­bil­i­ty activ­i­ty, we pre­sent­ed the project and we invit­ed par­tic­i­pants to learn basic steps of a chorog­ra­phy, giv­ing at the same time inspir­ing and moti­vat­ing mes­sages for their future and rais­ing aware­ness on the inclu­sion of migrants. Par­tic­i­pants enjoyed the activ­i­ty, asked more infor­ma­tion on the Eras­mus+ Pro­gramme and were very moti­vat­ed to know more on dif­fer­ent top­ics such as urban art, hip hop, dis­crim­i­na­tions suf­fered by migrants, sit­u­a­tions of oth­er coun­tries of the world like Guatemala and Togo, etc.
