Migrant Women: A Resource

15.07.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

This practice began in 2014 and it was supported by the European Commission Representation in Italy, Provincia di Roma and Atelier. It collected 15 stories from migrant women entrepreneurs in order to share them and create a network that proposes a creative approach on women entrepreneurs and migration. It connects participating migrant women entrepreneurs with the public through visual art tools (art shows, reportages, documentaries); performance workshops; events and a strong communication (social networks, press office and public relations).

Strane Straniere tried to choose different kind of migrants from different countries, multiple generations with different activities localised in different areas of the city. The practice starts as a field work. Relations with official organisms, public institutions, experts, associations and people are absolutely essential. Relations are its keywords and the networkis launched andconsolidated. Women entrepreneurs are not only observed but involved. Documentary work results had to be translated through art tools and new technologies, so that a wide audience could be involved and interested in the process.

This practice has been identified in the framework of the CSO WINS project (Capacity-building in the Southern Mediterranean to Open policy dialogue and monitoring for Women IN Society), with the support of the European Union’s Neighbourhood Civil Society Facility.
