Project

Fields: Cultural heritage/ Modern technology / refugee and Immigrants of children

Description

According to UNESCO, education could and must play an important role in the sensitization of the refugee problem. Art is an essential part of education and children express their feeling and what they experienced through their artworks.   The project aims to study the contemporary events of war and refugee as visually expressed in children’s artworks. A multidisciplinary analysis approach in the collection of the children’s artworks on war and refugee issues

can help to understand how these children experienced these circumstances and represent it through their artworks. Moreover, modern technology can help to analyze these works in addition to these, modern technology can assist to create educational material that will increase awareness of people what the refugees experienced and help so to reduce racism and people accept refugees as part of the society.
