“My Sweet School“, the 52’ documentary directed by Rajae Hammadi and Zakaria Rochdi and produced by Racines has been screened in Paris on Thursday 15th March 2018 within the framework of “Apéro Politique” of the CICP (Centre International de culture populaire) on the topic “Art and culture as tools of emancipation” in the presence of Raymond Benhaïm, president of Racines and Quitterie Berchon, manager of the SpeakArt project. The documentary recounts the origins and implementation of the project “SpeakArt - Promoting freedom of expression and culture of accountability“.
The event was held in 2 phases:
- Panel discussion on art and culture as tools of political emancipation and expression with the European Assembly of Citizens (art and resistance in Ukraine), the Palante BKK collective (counter-culture and protest in Peru), the CSIA-Nitassinan (art in the struggle of indigenous peoples) and Racines association
- Screening of the documentary “My Sweet School” and debate with the audience
Initiated by Racines, with the support of the British Embassy in Rabat, the SpeakArt project aims at raising citizens’ awareness on their rights and on political accountability through the production of a forum theater play about education and training workshops on citizenship and forum theater technics. The SpeakArt caravan stopped in 12 cities to give a performance of the theater play “My Sweet School” and to train and inform the local youth on citizenship topics.
