Successful art opening for Younès, John, Alain, Charles, Nizar, Drubo et Kawtar !
On Wednesday, June 26, during the opening of the exhibition "Nos Bleds", the participants of the workshop "Parcours d'enfants" at SFM Clichy shared with us the work done throughout the year.
The many visitors had the pleasure of discovering the testimonies and reflections of the children on the topics addressed: history of immigration, culture, identity, integration ... Enriched by the presentation of personal objects and family photos, the exhibition showed the diversity and richness of individual pathways.
Wishing to give their support to this project, the artists of the collective "Map World", had agreed to lend some of their works, thus giving rise to a meeting between artists, young and adults, having in common the desire to portray a part of what they are.
Inspired by a visit to the Cité de l'Immigration in Paris, the exhibition "Nos bleds" is the fruit of the work done by the childrenaged around 10, with the help of their parents. It gives full meaning to the word "bled", because one forget too often that "bled " also means "the land, the country".
"Our Bleds", because when we come from elsewhere, and we live here, we sometimes think we have to choose a half and because finally we all come from somewhere, and so we are all a little “blédard”.
-What I remember most of all is the war, when we saw the history of immigration
-What impressed me the most is the book: All French by the way
-Before the workshop, I did not want to keep my middle name. As it sounded too French for some friends, who made fun of me
-I liked what we did on the family tree. And also when we talk about racism and we looked for the origins of the players of the French football team
