STORYCLIPS FOR YOU 2
This project concerns two groups of young people, the first sharing a background as refugees, social disadvantagement, and the second group fortunate in that they have not had to live the experiences of the first.
The first group - two young refugees from Syria - was audibly and visibly recorded telling stories about their escape from Syria to Germany. This interview was then visualized by the second group - local German kids - and made into a short animated film.
This ‘transaction’ makes it possible for the first group to be understood and recognized in such a way that their traumatisations are relieved by the empathy, interest and appreciative attention given by the second group in these short films.
In a joint final presentation the project shows how young people from very different cultural and social backgrounds can help and influence each other.
