Professor Rosa Filardi Curates “Inclusiva:" a Festival Dedicated to Social Inclusivity
“Inclusiva” (Inclusive) is a three-day festival dedicated to the concept of inclusivity and breaking down the psychological, cultural, and geographical barriers that divide human beings. JCU professor Rosa Filardi, lecturer in Italian and Theatre and certified Dance Movement Therapist, is one of the curators along with Leonardo Gervasi and Michela Pasquali.
The festival will take place on June 25-26-27 at Mediterranea, a cultural organization that works to promote the integration of young refugees and asylum seekers in the city of Rome.
“We are social beings who learn, become enriched, and develop in relation to diversity, which is a stimulus for all kinds of thoughts and actions that allow us to go beyond what is known and habitual. We are convinced that it is necessary to act and develop dynamic realities that bear witness to the value of inclusivity, at this very moment when a growing part of society seems to want to negate it and go in the opposite direction,” says Professor Filardi.
The program includes workshops, lectures, videos, book presentations, accompanied by refreshments featuring recipes from all over the world.
