We will gather in a same space for a summer-campus-like experience, 15 of the most creative young artist and gamechangers from different cultures.
The core group-dynamic methodology will help participants learn from each-other’s realities while designing a multi-layered collaborative–art methodology with a positive impact on chosen social issues. Broad cathegories of selected issues can be: gender equality, evironmental preservation, cultural rights of minorities, access to basic needs, etc. They must be addressed in a collaborative fashion by applying intercultural innovationbased approaches. In parallel, a set of workshops and specialized training modules will be offered. In other words: the solution will arise by combining strategies from every culture´s imaginary, knowledge and values into a collaborative art project´s design.
The Art project
The goal of this stage is to set-up the right conditions for the art-project implementation, as much as mentoring campus participants as focal points in their communities, developing ownership, self-esteem, confidence, resilience and other soft skills needed for young creative leaders to unfold their potential.
The project itself will necessarily be a coral expression of art and digital forms of creativity: Photography, Video, Drawing and illustration, music, performative art... all of them created and/or performed back in their livinghoods. During creation process, participants from all communities will be interconnected, producing all art contents in a network fashion. The results will manifest the power of art as a bridge across cultures, helping under-represented communities regain cultural recognition, embrace coexistence in equity and promote solidarity in nowadays Network Society.
The whole process will produce a transmedia art online platform, made up of all the creations and a set of systematized interactive content that will allow others to replicate the experience in further locations both, from Window to Diversity network and beyond.
The Transmedia Platform
Summing up, Campus VEDI is the perfect medium to awake youthÂ´s creative thinking through which diverse people can work together, fostering mutual understanding and collaboration through art, in order to make a difference for their communities and the world.
