Migrant women will participate in planning and co-creation activities related to Barcelona’s cultural heritage linked to the participant’s history. The pilot will have a focus on the gender perspective to increase visibility of women’s history and the mutual understanding among different communities. The pilot consists of five core activities creating reports, policies and stories to inform the community, academia and government.
Communities from former Portuguese colonies or other cultural spaces that have a shared heritage with Portugal have rich cultural experiences. However, their experiences commonly run parallel to Portuguese culture, instead of engaging with the national culture, contributing to reshape it. The work will promote the production of mediated intercultural stories revolving shared heritage, promoting social cohesion between migrants and natives.
