Project Description: I-TALES finds its rationale in a context, easy to identify in a lot of contemporary societies, affected by a number of emergencies among which: massing migrations for different causes to the richest countries; fear of diversity and increasing racist behaviors; misinformation and hate speech spread by social networks. So the needs on which we want to intervene are:-urgency of construction of a cohesive community based on mutual respect, collaboration, dialogue, appreciation of cultural diversity.

It will be integrated by students from Art Schools, from Adult Education Centres and other adults, identified in collaboration with Municipalities social services and local associations, who need improve critical thinking, communication, responsibility, positive attitude, interpersonal soft skills, because influenced by misinformation and hate speech against migrants that some political parties, opinion makers, clubs use and social networks spread more and more. A number of musicians, either from partner organizations or external, will be part of the group too.
