Through meetings, debates and round tables in which will also participate resident migrants, or by visiting and workin in shelter for migrants in Palermo, participants will have the opportunity to come into direct contact with the reality of immigration in the area, where landings are frequent.This project also aims to create a cultural space of exchange and dialogue in which all associations can share their experiences, describing the migrants’ situation in their countries. Different activities will allow the participants to be strictly in contact with the immigrants living in Palermo, to which they will do some interviews to understand the reasons that led them to leave their country coming in Europe. These interviews, together with the main activities of the exchange will be filmed, so that at the end the group will create a video which will be useful to spread the activities during the dissemination phase.
