InCommon Toolbox Final Conference

Towards migrant women and refugees cultural citizenship

InCommonFC1IMPORTANT NOTE:

The COVID 19 global pandemic makes unviable to hold the conference on schedule. These are unexpected and rapidly evolving circumstances beyond our control. Once the alarm state ends, we will resume the activities for the dissemination of the materials and InCommon experiences. The desire of the InCommon team is a prompt containment of the virus and a quick recovery of those affected.

InCommon Toolbox is a project funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) of the European Commission for the integration of refugees and migrants, with the participation of partners from Austria, Cyprus, Spain and Greece. The project has implemented, along more than two years, an individualized guidance pathway aimed at 400 migrant women to achieve their full participation in the host community through culture.

As a final touch to this work we will hold a final conference involving all the agents who participated during the lifetime of the project.

It will be a day in which we will present the results of the project and make a reflection on integration through culture and education. Special attention will also be given to other issues such as improving access to cultural resources by the migrant population at local level or the specific barriers migrant women faced in their integration process.
