This project will be a process of creative workshop and encounters with different women, and migrants groups, Agroarte young people from different diasporas and will end with a final ‘public performance’ during which the project’s participants are collectively “planting” themselves with flowers into the ground in a public place to create catharsis. See videos below. 

There is a depth to the project around Truth & Memory which will be facilitated by professionals. Participants who will get involved will design the whole process and decide their own reasons for taking part in the planting: healing, protest, a symbol of planting new family roots in the area, connecting with the land, letting go, starting a new life, forgiveness, celebrate their migration process, etc.
