SO-CLOSE project’s main focus was on forced migrations in the past and present, as well as the contexts, agents and victims of the processes that lead to forced migrations: wars, political, religious or gender-based persecution, or the effects of climate change. It is an effect of collaboration of NGO’s, cultural institutions, academics, IT specialists and representatives of local communities from Greece, Italy, Poland, Spain and Sweden. Working in that project we aimed in contributing to social cohesion and fighting refugee marginalization or exclusion by facilitating the encounters of similar life stories, using innovative digital and artistic tools to mediate.
