Art Therapy Heals Immigrant Victims of War Prejudice and Sexual Exploitation

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 24 maggio 2018

New York’s Battery Dance launched its Dancing to Connect programs in 2006. Since that time, the program has spread to 6 continents, 50 countries, 100 cities, and 1,000 schools. A powerful new documentary by Wilderness Films follows six dancers from the dance company from India to Eastern Europe to the Korean Peninsula to the Middle East as they support vulnerable youth helping them to express themselves through movement. The film focuses on the struggles, frustrations, resilience and ultimate transformation of the students and their dance teachers.
Producer Cornelia Ravenal says that as a trauma survivor she understood the power of art to “heal and transform.” Ravenal along with husband partner Mikael Södersten collaborated with Battery Dance Founder Jonathan Hollander to create the documentary because she believed this was a story that had to be told. As global populations continue to grow, migration and increasing social and cultural diversity are reshaping classrooms worldwide. Solutions for integrating and uniting peoples from diverse cultural backgrounds are now sought by schools and communities all over the globe. Hollander believes that “no divide has been too great for the art of dance, the primacy of movement, the common humanity, and expression, to span.”
Battery Dance performs on the world’s stages, teaches, presents, and advocates for the field of dance. The Company is dedicated to the pursuit of artistic excellence and the availability of the Arts to everyone. Battery Dance has produced over 100 original dance works choreographed by its founder and artistic director Jonathan Hollander, in collaboration with a diverse array of composers and designers, and its cast of outstanding dancers. CMRubinWorld launched in 2010 to explore what kind of education would prepare students to succeed in a rapidly changing globalized world. Its award-winning series, The Global Search for Education, is a celebrated trailblazer in the renaissance of the 21st century, and occupies a special place in the pulse of key issues facing every nation and the collective future of all children. It connects today’s top thought leaders with a diverse global audience of parents, students and educators. Its highly readable platform allows for discourse concerning our highest ideals and the sustainable solutions we must engineer to achieve them. C. M. Rubin has produced over 700 interviews and articles discussing an expansive array of topics under a singular vision: when it comes to the world of children, there is always more work to be done.

Immigrant Citizens Survey

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 13 maggio 2012

La Fondation Roi Baudoin (Belgium) ha condotto una indagine sui cittadini immigrati: rilevazione dei bisogni, valutazione delle politiche, miglioramento delle capacità. Per raccogliere le percezioni dell’opinione pubblica e dei migranti e sviluppare una più completa comprensione dei processi di integrazione
Il progetto ha lo scopo di rendere la voce dei cittadini di paesi terzi legalmente residenti ampia e sufficientemente rappresentativa a livello Europeo affinché i loro bisogni, contributi, aspirazioni, e opinioni possano aiutare gli attori della politica a migliorare le capacità di integrazione. L’”Indagine Sui Cittadini Immigrati” chiede agli immigrati per prima cosa di valutare i loro bisogni e il loro contributo nella vita di tutti i giorni e poi di valutare come questi bisogni sono o potrebbero essere soddisfatti da interventi pubblici. La popolazione oggetto di questa indagine include adulti (dai 15 anni) cittadini di paesi terzi che risiedono legalmente nel paese da almeno un anno. Lo schema dell’indagine valuta bisogni e rilevanza politica, efficienza, ed efficacia in molte aree di integrazione: il mercato del lavoro e il riconoscimento delle competenze e dei titoli di studio; la vita famigliare; la sicurezza della residenza; l’accesso ai servizi generali (es. assistenza sanitaria, casa); istruzione; partecipazione civica; accesso alla cittadinanza; e l’antidiscriminazione. Tali temi sono delineati in modo da essere comparabili con i sondaggi generali già esistenti a livello europeo per permettere confronti tra i cittadini dei paesi terzi e il resto della popolazione.
L’indagine è stata condotta in 7 Paesi europei. In Italia la rilevazione si è svolta nelle città di Milano e Napoli, per un totale di 800 interviste, nel periodo ottobre-dicembre 2011

The reports reveal, however, that many of these bodies are not sufficiently resourced, empowered or independent to fulfil their role of protecting and promoting fundamental rights  The fourth report in the series records a general unawareness of fundamental rights and low levels of reporting of discrimination among immigrant and ethnic minority groups.  The FRA reports highlight ways in which the fundamental rights architecture in the EU can be strengthened and contain examples of good practices in this area.
