The aim of the project is to bring to light the invisible life stories of marginalized groups of society – disabled people and LGBT persons through transnational mobility of artists coming from Latvia, Montenegro and Serbia working together to create artworks using analogue photography, film and devised theatre as media. All project partners share the experience in working with marginalized groups and are willing to put their experience and know-how together to bring work in this field to an international level, ensuring transnational exchange of artistic practices and wider audience engagement. The project activities will include 3 workshops with artists – photographers, performance artists and film makers from Latvia, Serbia and Montenegro working together with representatives of local community – disabled people and LGBT people to make artworks based on their stories and to attract attention of a wider society of people whose stories remain untold as they are afraid or unable to be part of our society and public life.
