I am part of a group of experts and trainees in performing arts that participated in local and international workshops realised during the project “La langue des oiseaux”. The project promotes the performing arts as an inclusive multilingual platform for a society renewed by the entry and growth of new citizens with different profiles, experiences and dimensions, all actively engaged in paths towards the democratisation of culture. During the residence, we will discuss the experience of the artistic workshops realised so far, the usefulness and appropriateness of the methodology used, the difficulties found and the possible solutions. From the conclusion of this reflection, we will elaborate the roadmap for the rest of the project.
