Under 25 # Contact Zones # Rome is a networking project realized in cooperation between Margine Operativo, Attraversamenti Multipli 2019 and Spettatori Migranti _Attori Sociali.
The project consists of building a “mestizo” editorial staff, made up of young people from different backgrounds (Italians, second-generation Italians, young migrants and young asylum seekers).
This editorial staff ( RE.M REdazione Meticcia ) is responsible for managing a BLOG:
the Blog of Contact Zones _Roma / Attraversamenti Multipli 2019. The editorial staff is coordinated by Spettatri Migranti _Attori Sociali a project promoted by the editorial staff of “Teatro e Critica”, a theatre and dance webmagazine.
Bloggers create a “multimedia travel diary” of the 2019 Attraversamenti Multipli (Multiple Crossings ) / Contact Zones _Roma route.
The youths monitor all the artistic actions, the performances and the backstage of Contact Zones / Attraversamenti Multipli reporting live a dedicated Blog where they will publish photos, videos, speculations, critical reviews and interviews to artists and spectators alike.
Spettatori Migranti / Attori Sociali is promoted by the editorial staff of Teatro e Critica, a major theatre and dance webmagazine. It’s a workshop of active citizenship that aims at establishing a form of interaction between different cultures through a guided theatre-going experience, which is conceived as a social practice. Spectatorship is enriched by insights into theatrical languages and participation in the creative processes. Language practice, production of various forms of contents and their publication on an independent website allow those who take turn in joining the editorial board to be an active part of a cultural community. Discussions on works of art and critical practice not only help understand aesthetics and artistic trends, the same practice encourages every social actor – both migrants and residents – to challenge an overall concept of society, also questioning historical, cultural and civic issues.
