Participants from various countries of origin, with different residences, cultural or social background, exchange their experiences and present them in simple drawings. Through simple character games and common process, key elements and similarities of migration and discrimination experiences crystallize into clear statements and are formed into image motifs. The participants’ drawings are imported into a digital image database using the trickmix tool. On the Trickmisch plattform the participants can complement their drawings with picture elements from the picture database and compose them into poster motifs. The pictorial motifs can be supplemented or illustrated by a simple slogan / proverb sentence (translated into the most spoken languages of our neighbourhood).
The posters will be distributed in the neighborhood and Passersby are encouraged to comment. People of different backgrounds can find themselves in the pictures, gain new perspectives or change old ones.
A project of bi’bakwerk in cooperation with Trickmisch, Together we Share, Team Works and Demokratie in der Mitte.
