THE APPROACH - The Way
Click here for an important update.
Aesthetic Formation - appropriated to the Project Mare Nostrum means the training of the senses and the preparation to become able for better conceptual cognition. 'Visual thinking' - as universal language - is the principle in the processes of transformation, realisation, communication and mediation.
The main methodological objective is to prepare the young people that they become able to develop the Project in autonomy; it should become their project = their identification, in which they become capable in modelling and communicating - with the most diverse means - autonomously the singular voices of their environments.
How to go about this? The initiator, together with the Mundus maris coordinator for West Africa, will only provide through a methodological guideline the tools enabling the young people to express the essential roots of their living space in relationship to the sea - and finally to develop their own point of view.
The methodology is determined by the work in progress itself that will be set in motion – step by step - by motivating impulses, developed precisely with the growing experience in the region, beginning from the first immersion of the project initiator in Senegal onwards.
First cycle: Collective Memory
The collection of the memories, related to the surrounding sea
Second cycle: Collective Consciousness
Find an own visualized position in relation to the research results - mediated by the various scientific modules.
Each cycle should conclude with a manifestation in an appropriated place in West Africa.
