Generating Social Impact Through Filming

The ENACTING project aimed at highlighting the challenges, at local level, faced by less privileged communities in 5 European cities (Dresden, Athens, Marseille, Florence and Larissa), and to support the voice of those who are not equally represented in the public discourse through a coherent methodology for developing social documentaries.
Due to the pandemic there is an aggravated and unprecedented crisis, impacting education and Cultural and Creative Sectors. There are urban areas that present high levels of cultural heterogeneity and social inequality. The ENACTING project is a socially rooted project and a result of collaboration between Jugend-& Kulturprojekt e.V. (Dresden, Germany), ReadLab (Athens, Greece) and three ROOTS & ROUTES INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION members: Synergy of Music Theatre (Larissa, Greece), Centro di Creazione e Cultura (Florence, Italy) and Les Tetes de l’Art (Marseille, France).

The ENACTING project aims at developing a method of civic engagement based on the use of video documentaries. It aims at providing not only an online training course (MOOC) on how to realise a social documentary, but also a concrete methodology to identify social challenges in local contexts promoting active citizenship and participation, social inclusion, and intercultural dialogue for local communities such as youth workers, trainers and their organisations, migrants, disabled people, artists, local and national stakeholders, public and policy makers.

The project's results, the link to freely access the online course in English, German, Greek, Italian and French, as well as methodological documents, interviews with experts, and the videos selected for the ENACTING Digital Film Festival on April 28-29, 2023, can be found on the ENACTING platform

ENACTING is co-funded by the European Union under the ERASMUS+ KA227 “Partnerships for Creativity” programme.
