This Migrant Festival project was created in the ATRAC hackathon as part of the ATRAC project.
The ATRAC project has been promoted by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and seeks to create spaces for reflection around the reception of young people who migrate alone.
The Transmedia Catalonia research group of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, with funding from a call from la Caixa Foundation, has organized five activities for the ATRAC project as part of Reflections Project at Palau Macaya 2020-2021 to generate new solutions around the integration of young migrants.
During the first three activities, challenges arose from debates between public administrations, European projects working for the reception of migrants (TRACTION and SO-CLOSE), and interested entities and young people. The fourth activity was the participatory event in a hackathon format, and in the fifth activity this solution was presented to researchers from leading universities and centres of artistic creation.
