Stories of Dresden Community
It’s a small scale project of fellow Hana Sebestova during her phase I., placement in Germany (02.10 – 15.11.2018), under the “START – Create Cultural Change” program supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
The mini project’s goal under „yOUR Community“ program focused on local community’s needs and on issues that nowadays resonates and divides the society.
Using memory as a tool helping us to understand different paths as a reflection mirror of the diverse societies we live in.
The idea was to share personal stories in open discussions, in a creative way, understanding and getting closer to each other, focusing on people with a background of escape, migration and difficult paths.
The project consists from 3 activities: workshop, exhibition and video interviews.
During the workshop we used non-formal methods including creative, autobiographical writing, searching for an artistic voice in our lives.
We brought the light of the past into the present and it reminded us how our lives have changed.
The result of the workshop are short stories, illustrated by the participants, presented in the exhibition, hosted in different places of Dresden.
“Memory Alive/Stories of Dresden Community” is supported by “START – Create Cultural Change”, a program of the Robert Bosch Stiftung, conducted in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki and the German Association of Sociocultural Centers, supported by the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation and the Bodossaki Foundation.
