The main objectives of the project are the prevention of youth violence and the promotion of rehabilitation processes in urban areas with a high occurrence of violent acts (railway stations, ports and country borders).
“Art in Transit” will take place in the atrium of Pescara railway station where it will be possible watch the street tango performances of the “Artistic Center Ideal”, the hip hop music of DJ N2NELL, the acrobatics of the B-Boy and the theatrical happenings of the “Errori di Trasmissione” Association.
At the same time, at the Polifunctional Centre for homeless people “Train de Vie” (behind the railway station), it will also be possible to visit the photographic exhibition, the result of the workshops of visual anthropology promoted within the project “Violence in Transit”. The photographs and the preparation of the exhibition are entirely made by users of the Centre and beneficiaries of the project.
