The production of video-documentary and theatrical performance, two of the main awareness-raising tools of the AwArtMali project, is in full swing
Video-documentary and theatrical performance to raise awareness and information on irregular migration
The working basis, both for the video and for the show, is the collection of interviews. From 9th to 16th June 2019, 40 interviews and 4 interventions were carried out in 4 schools in Mali in the municipalities of Dio-Gare, Diago, Kambila, Yelekebougou by Maurizio Schmidt, Luca Fusi, Ildevert Meda with the mediation of the LeTonous team and of the three animators of Le Tonous Aminata Traore, Satigui Cissoko, Tiemoko Dembele. The interviewees are potential migrants, returning migrants (from other African countries or from Spain and Italy), griots, village leaders, school directors, teachers and pupils of secondary schools in the four municipalities.
Finally, between March and May 2020, the editing of the video documentary will be concluded, and it will then be presented between May and June 2020 at the conclusion of the AwArtMali project.
What is AwArtMali
AwArtMali aims to contribute to the change of perceptions and behaviour of Malian people looking to irregular migration towards the EU as the only solution to their socio-economic problems.
The action is intended to reach and involve Malian people in order to make them aware and inform them on the risks of irregular migration, on legal alternatives and on economic opportunities available in their country with a multistakeholder approach consisting in awareness campaign and information activities.
