The project was entirely funded by the Municipality of Olbia and implemented by MVNGO.
The activities involved 2 classes of the third High School year of the Institute and were implemented by two collaborators of MVNGO, a Trainer expert in Non Formal Education and a Facilitator.
“Photovoice Olbia” was a project involving youngsters aged between 16 and 18 from Istituto Superiore Amsicora IPIA, also through the use of communication media as photographs and videos, developing their creativity and putting the latter to the service of the citizenry through the promotion of active citizenship. “Photovoice Olbia” activated a path allowing young people to develop their own points of view regarding the world surrounding them as well as to exploit these as tools of social change through the use of photography, videos and group discussion. The language of imagery, easily accessible for young people in particular, was combined with text language by the development of digital instruments and of widespread tools as smartphones, bringing into being an original and innovative methodology of research and analysis about urban contexts and ordinary life experiences, which contributed to the development of the critical thinking of the youngsters involved, giving voice to marginalized individuals and areas of the city.
