Kick-off meeting – ENACTING project
Social documentaries can be a powerful tool for the local communities to raise awareness on societal challenges of their urban settings and convey their messages especially after being so much affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The ENACTING project – Generating Social Impact through Filming aims to provide citizens with knowledge, skills and space to produce and share their own documentaries to address social issues in EU cities that share challenges and opportunities: Dresden, Marseille, Florence, Larissa and Athens. All 5 cities are moderate performers in the CCC Monitor ,have diversified populations and immigration strains. All have deprived communities experiencing social exclusion. Additionally, Covid-19 created an unprecedented crisis, impacting education and CCS. The project focuses on urban areas that present high levels of cultural heterogeneity and social inequality. Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. hosted the Kick-off meeting on the 10th and the 11th of June via zoom and had a fruitful and productive dialogue with our partners SMouTh – Synergeio Mousikou Theatrou from Larissa, Greece, ReadLab from Athens, Greece, Centro di Creazione e Cultura from Florence, Italy and Les têtes de l’art from Marseille, France. We are glad to have started this impactful project and looking forward to working closely with our international partners and our local stakeholders.
