Photo or video competition on social media: ‘we are intercultural’ #BCNconcursoFATI

There is a growing nationalist, racist and xenophobic tendency in EU societies, which is undoubtedly expanded in recent years by the bad images on refugee and immigrant flows. At this time, Europe has a negative attitude towards migrations and the arrival of people from other countries. From the FATI Project we want to counteract these negative images, and promote interculturality and the inclusion of all people in our society.

On the 17th of November the #BCNconcursofati contest ended with a bang! Two great videos were selected and the winners with the respective awards.The award ceremony happened on the 26 of November at the Pati Llimona Civic Center.

First place was given to an animation done frame by frame which were depictive of everyday realities of migrants, named “Nomad Animations”. These animation were created for the Festival Enfocats organized by de Pati Llimona Civic Center, with the children from the Casal Infantil Pati Llimona and the Fundació Esperança. Editing was done by La Maleta de Cine and Africadoolu.

In the mandinka language Adoolu means Cultures. They are a group of people united by art, education through art and cultural management. Since 2017 they work to promote and disseminate African culture through the different arts.
