IVRY-SUR-SEINE | 2021-2022
Tadam! is a practical radio training workshop with children who have recently immigrated to France and are staying at the emergency shelter in Ivry-sur-Seine. This shelter – which has its very own school – is a trial program carried out in collaboration with the Paris and Créteil school boards.
The children at the emergency shelter school have had a difficult, even painful, migratory journey, and arriving in France is far from the end of their hardship: there are still many social hurdles and red tape to overcome. This is an opportunity to take a break, take the load off and get administrative assistance. Tadam! is a fun, creative, group project. We believe that radio – which is a place to speak and listen – can be an asset in providing migrants with an opportunity to build relationships among themselves and with the host country.
