A DOCUMENTARY VIDEO AND A THEATRICAL TOURNEE TO AWARENESS ABOUT THE RISKS OF IRREGULAR MIGRATION IN MALI
With these two tools, the TAMA365 campaign enters its full development. The production of the video documentary and the theatrical show, two of the main tools for raising awareness of the AwArtMali project, is in full swing. Through the production of a documentary video, the TAMA 365 campaign will narrate the migration through voices and images: lived stories, tales of those who have already embarked on the journey, what are the steps, the difficulties, the sufferings, the dreams they have. But also a way to tell positively how it is possible to undertake real integration paths and find opportunities to grow, or acquire skills and competences that can be spent in a dignified and safe life project in own country.
Video-documentary and theatrical performance to raise awareness and information on irregular migration
The production of video-documentary and theatrical performance, two of the main awareness-raising tools of the AwArtMali project, is in full swing. The working basis, both for the video and for the show, is the collection of interviews.
