As soon as a map is present in a room, migrant people are very often attracted by it because it allows them to visualize and present to others their journey, their history. Because the term migrant is only a general and generic term that covers a diversity of profiles, individual and collective histories, legal status. ARTEM proposes to build on this observation to highlight their individuality, to take them out of this vague definition full of clichés and stereotypes.
The partnership masters the techniques of storytelling and digital storytelling acquired through various European projects. It will develop training that will take as a starting point the research established in the first phase of the project, in order to take as much as possible into account the specificity of the situation of migrants and professional’ needs. The idea of this intellectual production is therefore to use this asset to successfully break down the stereotypes that local populations may have, while valuing the person through his or her history, making him or her unique.
This step will obviously go beyond the objective of breaking stereotypes. It is a complete training curriculum backed by a tool (Cov-on) and will aim to highlight the skills and backgrounds of migrants in order to promote their value in host communities and interaction with their members.
