Gli artisti selezionati parteciperanno a una residenza a Milano dal 12 al 17 novembre.
Il progetto è ideato come un percorso per formare e sensibilizzare giovani cittadini alla realtà del percorso migratorio e al concetto di asilo, tracciando un comune piano d’azione volto ad accrescere l’impegno contro il razzismo e ogni forma di intolleranza e discriminazione. Lo strumento scelto per affrontare questi temi delicati in questa seconda edizione è la street art, un medium che consente di entrare in diretto contatto con i più giovani, sensibilizzandoli e aiutandoli a innescare riflessioni e dialogo costruttivo, permettendo al contempo una fruizione immediata dei risultati dei lavori anche da parte di un più ampio pubblico. L’ edizione di quest’anno inoltre raccoglie e sarà parte di “Milano Città Mondo#04Perù”.

Grazie a tutti gli artisti che hanno partecipato alla call.
