InCommon, cultural interventions on Cultural Citizenship Scale

InCommonLI13The InCommon project has developed a Cultural Citizenship Scale (CCS) as part of the individual guidance methodology for the social integration of migrant women through culture and education in the host society.

One of the objectives of the project is to implement the CCS on the field and for this aim DOCUMENTA has carried out ten local interventions covering all stages of the CCS. The interventions began in October 2019 and will end in January 2020. They all has taken place in the city of Santander, Cantabria.

The migrant women participating in the InCommon project decided what kind of activities they wanted to do as a result of the discussions in previous activities of the project. In some activities the women themselves organised and managed the intervention –those in level 3 and 4 of the CCS, and in other occasions they were supported by DOCUMENTA and EAPN Cantabria –women in levels 1 and 2.

A total of 282 attendants followed the activities in Santander. The attendants has been mainly migrant women (70%) from the nationalities participating in the project (Eastern Europe and Latin America), volunteers (15%) and local audience (15%) that attended the open activities like the musical evening or the cinema.

InCommonLI1The interventions include a musical evening of Russian romances and the screening of an interactive short film at the Madrazo Cultural Centre; guided tours of the Botín Center, Los Arenales Cultural Center, the Mercado de la Esperanza and the MUPAC, Museum of Prehistory and Archaeology of Cantabria and other writing and audio-visual media activities such as digital narratives and photo workshops that have helped women to exchange cultural perspectives of the city in which they live.

Some of the local InCommon interventions are available in the project toolkit, as well as complete information on the CCS and other project materials.
