ABOUT THIS EVENT

This Youth Exchange aims to promote critical thinking around the narratives and audiovisual representations of the Other (the migrant, the foreigner, the racialized, the "stranger") in the media. Here is how we will do it:


1. EXPLORING OUR PAST: Certain narratives and stereotypes were developed during colonial times. To fight them first we have to know where they come from!


2. ANALYZING OUR PRESENT: How are the “Others” represented nowadays? We will find out through debates, film screenings, personal experiences, and other activities.


3. RESHAPING OUR FUTURE: We will explore our identities and rewrite our own stories through photography, videomaking, and artistic practices.

We are looking for participants:

  • Aged 18-30 (+30 exceptionally for group leaders)
  • Motivated to explore the representation of the Other in the media
  • Willing to take part in an international experience
  • Resident in France
  • We particularly invite participants with the following background:
    • Experiences of migration or interest in this topic
    • Willing to fight stereotypes and discrimination
    • Passionate about visual arts
It's important that you read this document carefully.
