Within Within asbl

Surviving a war and beginning a new life in a new country entails a loss of references. To break the cycle of hate and fear that war creates, the most effective ways are artistic expression and writing. The project “Within” is a collective writing and artistic creation workshop that has the goal of encouraging the expression of cultural diversity and the development of a state of well-being to facilitate social integration in the host country.

Participants will have a choice of activities: workshops to develop self-knowledge, discussions and analysis of cultural elements in the home and host countries, and workshops for learning different techniques of self-expression through writing, with the support of intercultural mediation.

Each year two artists’ books are created collectively and result in a public performance that is prepared in a professional manner.

Target population:
– Applicants for international protection
– Beneficiaries of international protection
– Anyone living in Luxembourg, whether they are migrants or not

Duration of the project: 25/09/2016 – 31/12/2017
