Artivism Workshop by luzie ahrens
The artivism workshop was held in Aarhus, Denmark for participants of the Erasmus
youth exchange program in cooperation with “Passion Udflug” (NRO), “Ungdomskulturhuset Aarhus” (cultural center) and “Useful Arts for Communities” (art platform).
The workshop motivated the participants to actively think about the feelings and thoughts refugees might have when being forced to leave home and live in
a different country. They stepped into the imaginary shoes of a refugee and discussed as a group the challenges one might face in different stages of the journey. It was discussed which elements are needed to feel comfortable and supported in an unknown environment.
