Teaching Photography to Migrants
After 7 years teaching in international Universities, I decided to create a special programme to teach the use of photography to groups of migrants. In 2017 (togheter with a cultural mediator and a psychologist) we started the first self-representation photo class for migrants at the Temporary Reception Center in Pomino. The objective was to use images to create a cultural bridge within the group of migrants and with operators. On the other side we understood how strong is the need of self representation on social media to prove the personal success of the migration journey, so we started to monitorizing and study this new fenomena. Out of the group, some people got their refugee status and currently, in partenership with Caritas, I am teaching photography to an advanced level to one of them.
