Biographies of Resistance: Meeting with the History of Marginalized Groups, between Oppression and Fight for Human Rights
The project “Biographies of Resistance: Meeting with the History of Marginalized Groups, between Oppression and Fight for Human Rights” focuses on the topic of under-representation of marginalized groups (women, religious and national minorities, LGBT+, refugees, and migrants) in formal education, historical narratives, and public space. Until today, history has been written mostly by privileged classes that ignored the perspectives of marginalized groups, making them invisible. We believe that in our contemporary society that is becoming more multicultural and diverse, it is necessary to offer a different model of interpretation of contemporary history which also includes categories that have been mostly ignored by historiography and formal education. Through workshops, games and art, we will discover together these different perspectives on remembering.
The main activity will be a Summer School for young people, organized in Zagreb in May 2021.
The project is the result of a collaboration between Documenta - the project coordinator - and its international partners: EYCB – European Youth Centre Breclav (Czech Republic), United Societies of Balkans (Greece), TDM 2000 (Italy), Youth Zone (Serbia) and Las Niñas del Tul (Spain).
The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
