The last day of the Migrant Bodies-moving borders workshop in Bassano del Grappa started with a physical practice guided by Nora Chipaumire, and explored discussions around ‘sharing the personal archive’ with Nora, Sangeeta Isvaran, Gwen Hsin-Yi Chang and Melanie Demers. The team of artists, partners and social workes met in the afternoon with EACEA officer Ricard Moya to share progresses and the future steps of the project.
The day started with Giorgia Ohanesia Nardin and Chiara Bersani leading dance practices and participating in conversations with Selamawit Biruk, Patrik and Satchie Noro discovering differences in the personal archives.
The Migrant Bodies – Moving Borders team met in the afternoon with social workers from Italy and Austria to explore further more how dance can impact their field and context of work.
The Dance Artists proposed, at the end of the day, moving borders walks to small groups of people from different nationalities.
Migrant Bodies participants had a great time, met lots of surprising reactions and gained lots of positive experiences today, saying hello and shaking hands with everyone that crossed our path today. Building bridges, spreading openness, acceptance and positivity, from Dolac to the clock on the Ban Jelačić square in Zagreb.
