Around the Global Campfire: Arts-based reflections and dialogues with youth for social transformation

Aktiviteetti: EsitelmäKeynote-esitelmä

Kuvaus

SEEYouth project has collaborated with youth in Southern Finland for two years, combining socially engaged and arts-based methods, social work research and professional expertise on social sector working with youth from asylum seeking backgrounds. The youth, the researchers and the professional collaborator will present the background, context and the contents of this two-years’ journey, including two arts-based workshop weekends held in the summers 2020 and 2021 with the theme of ‘Around the Global Campfire’. ‘Around’ is a metaphor for a circular, horisontal space where hierarchies are dismantled and silences heard. ‘Global’ refers to transnational connectivity, to macro structures that shape our worlds and knowing. ‘Campfire’ symbolises – in one of the participant’s words – warmth and lightness that are the core elements of the sense of belonging. This metaphoric space build on ways and languages of creativity, communality and harmony (Mignolo, 2018), which can foster social transformation towards more inclusive and pluralistic worlds.
