With the project “Rebuild the Life in the Frontier” we seek to give solutions and alternatives to a coercive type of life experienced by migrants living in the Centre of Temporary Stay for Immigrants in Melilla (CETI – Centro de Estancia Temporal de Immigrantes). Trapped in that special camp built to host migrants coming from Africa to the city of Melilla, the so-called “door to Europe,” they wait for their “ticket” to Europe. In some cases, they have to face expulsion back to their home country. Often times, their lives in the city are characterized by segregation and absence of motivation to integrate. The main objective of the project is to reach a better quality of life for migrants through a social action plan that uses Arts and Media. Diverse courses of photography, participatory video, blogging, radio communication, painting and theatre aim to provide participants with instruments to get actively engaged in the life of the city. This allows them to build a life out of the segregation experienced in the CETI.
