Theo Prodromidis, director, visual artist:
“Science, Technology, Art and Migration –
Towards the exchange of equality and the pacing of citizenship”
In his workshop Theo Prodromidis, director, visual artist, presented his ongoing project that traverses new media, informal education, mobility and citizenship. He aims at developing an application that provides simultaneous access to online rap contests. He has drawn inspiration and support from teenage refugees in Greece.
Such an application can address issues of social integration and participation of numerous young refugees that now live in isolated camps in Greece. It can enable them to develop everyday online interactions with Greeks, express their anxieties and hopes and foster the creation of an online community. Its endorsement by refugees and natives can contribute to processes of informal education, cultural integration and shaping new ideas about citizenship.
