Image
It is a great pleasure for me to share & promote this little, bright gem.
"Das Heimlich - The Uncanny 2015" is a 6minutes short film on the theme of psychoanalysis. It is about psychoanalysis on its everlasting way of being out of the niche. Exploring the unknown. Out of usual scheme.

Results & outputs of Multipolis workshop: Malmö (SE) 2006

Image
Looking at the some hundreds readers of Multipolis sessions outputs, it seems they are of some interest. I am on the way for the workshop during the FEANTSA conference in Bergamo on Friday 24 November. On this path to Bergamo, I propose another witness of a workshop session that took place during the last international meeting of project CATCH Creative Approach To Combating Homelessness(Eu project co-funded by DG Social Affair n. VS/2002/010/J37 0/26).

A great little story of ordinary dignity and abominable shame

Image
There is a great little story that I think it deserves to be told. It's a great little story of ordinary dignity & abominable shame that takes place in Turin, Piedmont. Here a group of parents got involved with a selves-direct activation to protect the rights of their children with sensorial disabilities (deaf, hear-impaired & blind minors). They had to learn, organize & advocate against the city-Government Hall, the Regional Board, or both.

new materials from Evelyn Glennie on AoB page

Image
There are people around us who are truly special.
Since I read & heard Evelyn Glennie's thoughts on listening, deafness & hearing impairment, I knew she is such a person. Dame Evelyn Glennie is well known as the first full-time solo percussionist in the 20th century and perhaps even all of history.
Her life is a story worth exploring, her words are extraordinary.

I am happy & proud to see some hundreds of readers showing their interest for Multipolis outputs; so I thought it is time to re-published some old sessions results, starting with one of the earlier.
The workshop took place in Vienna (AT) on 17th March 2006, during the international seminar The needs of homeless women, part of the project CATCH Creative Approach To Combating Homelessness (Eu project co-funded by DG Social Affair n. VS/2002/010/J37 0/26). The workshop theme was Facing homeless women.

new materials from Michele Lancione on AoB pages

Image
I found a couple of articles from Michele Lancione very impressive on the themes of homelessness; I felt all should read, comments with feedback & debate, so I linked them directly from my AoB page.
Both texts are in English. - How is homelessness? Objects, codes & poetry to re-imagine homelessnessEntanglements of faith: discourses, practices of care & homeless people in an Italian city of Saints.
