The second edition of the summer camp Ruta al exilio was announced by the general director of the Youth Institute (Injury), María Teresa Pérez, at a ceremony held at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid on April 29. The meeting was organized by the Ministry of Social Rights and the 2030 Agenda and was attended by Minister Ione Belarra, as well as by collaborators, family members, and participants from the first edition, who made a small presentation of the creative projects developed at the end of the project.
In the words of the organizers, the training curriculum of the second edition, entitled “The banished presents”, “looks at our recent past to address its similarity with current conflicts and exiles”. To do this, “it will investigate not only the causes and consequences of the Spanish republican exile, but also the processes of memory reconstruction and construction of national identity in Spain, comparing them with other similar processes in nearby countries.” The objective of the project is to provide youth with the tools to establish connections between stories of the past, events of the present, and imaginaries of the future, promoting a civic spirit and active participation in resolving conflicts.
The new route will be back at the Pyrenean border and the Mediterranean coast between Catalonia and France from July 15 to 30, 2022, and the call is aimed at young people from all over Spain who are between 16 and 17 years at the time of issue and registration. The participation is free of charge since the project is financed by the Ministry of Social Rights and the 2030 Agenda through the Injuve, with the collaboration of the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation.
The first call of this itinerant educational project received 300 applications and was attended by 30 youngsters. One of the requirements to participate is to present a proposal for a creative project to be developed during the route. The results of the creative projects developed in the first edition are now displayed online. The physical exhibition can be seen at the Injuve headquarters in Madrid until June 03, 2022.
