Terra Vera Association is dedicated to creating and enhancing social networks between newcomers and local artists and artisans in order to co-create and foster creative social cooperative. We encourage participatory work as a particularly valuable method for collective empowerment and social cohesion. By recognising and validating people’s skills and talents, developing cultural leadership and making space for different subjective voices, we provide people with the freedom to express the stories and enable an exchange of voices, fostering mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue. Most of all, through our activities we aim to provide shared spaces: spaces of welcome, protection, support and belonging where newcomers can share with local agents, co-work, co-learn, co-create and find solace. Our ‘Living Room’ shows that newcomers bring with them skills, knowledge and talent, which are best activated in connection with local creative people.
