The project aims to cast a light on propaganda before and during WWII, focusing on its role to enforce the concept of “enemy” – from national and ethnic groups to political opponents and social groups. Moreover a special attention will be given to the role of grassroots media and peace organizations in challenging propaganda through innovative communication methodologies and tools.

Whithin the project there will be 5 Remembrance weeks (short term mobilities) and currently we are looking for participants for the Remembrance week in Rome, Italy, which will take place from 14th to 23th June 2021.

During the Remembrance Weeks participants, supported and guided by the Remembrance Messengers, will implement different activities aimed at going in depth into the following key words/topics:

  • Remembrance                                        
  • Propaganda and media
  • Nationalism
  • Hatred of the enemy
  • Grassroots media
  • Pacifism
  • Counter narratives

The Set of Infographics will be created on the basis of the researches participants will realize during the activity, focused on 10 specific topics:

  • Fear
  • Propaganda
  • Gender
  • Freedom of speech
  • Nationalism
  • History
  • Normalization
  • Youth
  • Social Frustration
  • Hate crimes

Participants will be asked to implement some previous research on the topics listed above with relation to their local contest, both in the past during the fascist/nazi regimes and in the present, in the policies or propaganda carried on by right-wings parties or movements.

It is important to bring to the Remembrance Week every material (soft and hard), pictures, fanzines, presentation, testimony that can give a contribution to the debate and to the research realization.

We are looking for participants who are:

?Age 16+
?Able to understand and express themselves in English
