The target communities of MEMEX are socially fragile people that are systematically blocked from various cultural opportunities and resources that are normally available to members of a different group, and which are fundamental to social integration. As an heterogeneous sample of these communities, MEMEX will deploy three distinct pilots to analyse different expectations from communities dislocated in different regions of the European territory:

Barcelona's migrant women and the gender perspective (Spain)

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. 

District XIX: Digital storytelling with inhabitants in priority neighbourhood of Paris (France)

An enriched cultural route in district XIX in the north of Paris (Rosa Parks area). This is a priority territory and depend on a specific urban public policy. The pilot will have a focus on population in a situation of risk of exclusion (young people, senior) due to poverty, urban environment access to culture and academic heritage.

Enhanced readings of shared Portuguese heritage through emancipated eyes (Portugal)

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.

Memex project started in 2019 and will run until 2022.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 870743.
