Intercultural Workshops. Save the Children

Via Colectivo Piloto

Filmmaking workshops developed in public high schools of Barcelona, Spain; to celebrate the cultural diversity and improve social integration.

The population of Spain is changing: In the last twenty years, more than 1 million persons have immigrated from Latin America, Asia and East Europe.

To improve the relationships between local and immigrants, the Spanish branch of the non-profit organization Save the Children in co-production with my organization Colectivo Piloto conducted diversity workshops in public high-schools of Barcelona asking the young participants to talk about their family and origins.

Telling their story and hearing those of their schoolmates raised the children’s awareness of their cultural differences. They were able to understand that these differences were not barriers, but rather tremendous opportunities to learn from diversity.
